Keep us updated on what work you do get done, when you can!
Ok, as promised, an update...and yes, pics to come as well.
-Picked up my bored/honed (with torque plates) block from the machine shop...perks of trying to find a new machinist. We'll see how this mic's out.
-Did my usual oil port modifications.
-cleaned up the machining on the pistons...basically knock down potential hotspots, radius sharp edges etc. Starts with a fine sand cartridge (tried some new SA ones that weren't so fine as you'll see in the pics) on my die grinder, then 3M medium grit sanding sponge and finish with a fine sanding sponge or steel wool.
I need to finish up the LH head combustion chambers and then drop the heads off for a valve job.
Next up will be measuring block, pistons, rods, bearing clearances, piston to wall, etc...all that fun stuff.
