Making slow progress. Picked up the engine in Feb. Four new sleeves, 16 valve seats and guides, and new rod and main bearings.

What would be a good solder to use on the wrist pin oiling tubes? Two of the tubes were loose and the other two had fallen into the pan after getting chewed up.

The "new", lead free, plumbing solder is very strong or you could use a 5% silver bearing solder which is stronger but requires more heat and is a bit more difficult to work with.
Another alternative is there >>> https://www.homedepot.com/p/SOLDER-I...SP-7/300916097

When will you get to the fun part of assembly? I assume that you have your new aluminum pistons just waiting to get married to the connecting rods! How is your cam, lifters, bearings and front gear drives?

I'm reusing the original pistons. They were still in good shape. The cam, cam bearings lifters, and gears are in good shape too.
