Finally, at the end of this episode, the 454 will be functionally back together. This is the third and final(ish) engine assembly video and starts with the long block assembled, but some time is needed to make sure everything else fits just right.
Particularly finding bolts that fit and getting a good fit/seal on the intake manifold, setting the oil pickup to pan clearance and welding on a bracket to hold it in place, carefully bolting down the oil pan, and painting the assembled engine. Not the most interesting stuff and it does take some time to get through, but important nonetheless (the paint is important because looking good is vital).
