I couldn’t survive I concentrate way better with a bit of black album or ride the lightning playing or razors edge drives me nuts without music playing in the workshop even worse when it’s bad music but then again that might just be me :lol:

Started putting the motor back together. The new pistons and ARP tod bolts are being fitted and rods resized at the machine shop and will be ready next week. I blocked down the deck with 360 wet and dry, cleaned off all the gasket surfaces and washed down the block with a ton of brake cleaner and then blew it over with compressed air to get rid of any debris. I cleaned up the bores with brake cleaner on rags until it came clean. Must have gone through at least a dozen rags I reckon until it came up properly clean.

Looking Good heff0018,

I would have waited until the rods came back to clean the cylinders as the air will flash on the clean metal. It is a step you would generally do during the assembly not before hand. Grab yourself some wb40 and drown the cylinders in it so that it does not flash any further. While it is at the micro level I have seen the flash do some strange things to new rings before. Just take the precaution now.

It might be a shadow but how are the cam bearings. There is at least one I would be checking closely with the photo you have supplied. If you can find another bolt which is used for your main caps then I would also cut a slot in it and chase these so that the threads are clear and clean.

Looking great though. keep it up :thumbup:

I don't like that brass oil pressure fitting hanging out the side of block. With vibrations they have a habit of shearing off usually in the block and at a time when your having fun and you end up stuck in the middle of no where.
