All I can say is Its not a good idea rechecking ring gaps late at night after consuming numerous beers.

AnywAy the replacement ring arrived today, the last piston is installed and I will buttoning up the rest of the motor tomorrow.

Cheers

I can remember long time ago I was putting a 454 with super slim rings together and it was due to be freighted to the NT the following day and guess what. Yes ring snapped and the boss was livid. I had a close look at the ring and found a small inclusion that looked like a small ball and it's right where the ring snapped but it didn't help because we had to get another set flown out from the states.

To turn a negative into a positive at least I now know at what point of twist a ring will snap

What's the cogged wheel on the front of the crank for? Ignition trigger?

Nothing, its just an old timing chain sprocket I use to run the motor over with.

Glad someone asked teh question as I was sitting here going, errr that is a timing gear what is it doing on the outside of the timing case..... then I noticed that the pulleys were installed on the in car shot and though ok, temporary or you worked out it needed to be on the inside :P

Looking good so far, hopefully it will go grrr soon.

Need video of the initial start :D

Fitted up the alternator and clearance to the power steering pump is all good. Glad I took measurements before pullling the motor out.

Just waiting on a new rocker cover gasket that is on back order.
