A quick update for tonight - all 4 pistons/connecting rods are now installed. After mis-reading the markings on the connecting rods and the rod bearing caps, I had all 4 caps installed wrong. Once that was corrected, everything turned over nicely.

I found the camera, so tomorrow you can see pics of the home-made valve spring compressor that I will be using for the cylinder head that will be going on top of the ABA block. It should work well, I think.
