Default found a vid of my machinist working on a couple Subaru blocks

I just picked up my block today after a 3 wk wait. I had John Edwards talk to CP Piston's tech support to get the right ra numbers for their rings. Cosworth's tech support also recommended an ra of between 20 or lower for the deck surface to have their head gasket seal correctly. So this was the goal when resurfacing the top of the block deck. John also checked the mains for straightness. The crank was sent out to have a .001" clearance on the rod journals. He also balanced the whole rotational assembly to 1/2 gram.

Here's some vids of machinist I used, John Edwards from Costa Mesa R & D in Orange County, Southern California:

Here's another vid resurfacing a Subaru SVX block with sleeves:
