Has anyone ever painted an assembled engine then replaced the old hardware? Im thinking of replacing one bolt at a time, working around. Im sure this will work fine on clutch cover and left side cover, but what about head nuts or case hardware? I dont want to commit to this unless these is a good chance it will work... it would only be for cosmetic reasons. My top end has low hours and my trans shifts fine. The next time this engine gets rebuilt I will most likely PC the cases and replace the crank.
