I have been able to get the mechanical updates done and the motor will be stored in my garage over the winter. The water pump is newer as installed by the PO. I did remove and clean up the lower front cover and replace the gaskets and O rings in there, as someone was red RTV happy and it was quite a mess inside there. Fortunately the loose RTV seems to have been only in the cooling section. I cleaned out the oil pump screen and virtually no dirt was present and no RTV and the motor internals are very clean.
I did a valve stem seal update with the heads in place and replaced the timing belts and the thermostat assembly. The valve covers and timing belt covers were given a clean up and buffed and then a respray with fresh clear coat. The fuel pump diaphragm was leaking on the motor, so I had a good replacement that was installed.
I have cleaned up and repainted the rotor assemblies with the Dupli Color gloss black engine enamel as shown earlier in the documentation of the work.
