    What jets do you have in the front and back? Is that a PowerValve carburetor? I guess I should really ask what carb is on it?

    Sounds like it's about to do a flame out from fuel puddling.

    What are the specs of the cam.

    Excuse me not wanting to look through 34 pages.

    Shane,

    He's telling you that they could have stamped a .010", or so, under bearing as a standard sized by mistake.

    You need to take each piston out. My guess is you are going to find a piston that will be hard to get out. You might have jammed an oil ring up and forced it into the cylinder. If this is so, then...

    You say that with the cam and the timing gear installed the shortblock turned over fine.

    Having said that, as the motor sits right now with no valvetrain in it, there are few possibilities. The...

    A dial indicator, in this situation, would be used for measuring the distance of the piston sitting in the hole, or coming out the hole.

    The easiest way to check that is get a definite straight edge object and hold it on the deck. Then run the piston up to see if it moves the straight edge.

    Do you have a dial indicator and a stand?

    I said PISTONS, I didn't say RODS.

    If the pistons are coming out the the holes to far then they will run into the heads. Remember, it's a matter of thousandths. Any machine shop can shave the...

    When you had the shortblock assembled, did you run the motor around and see if the pistons come out of the cylinder at all? There isn't any way for the head to interfere.

    If that isn't the...

    Tell Jeg Jr. that I have more holeshot's for him this year again.

    I don't think you have too much to worry about since the spot it is chipped in only comes into contact with the skirt. If it was close to the oil ring then you might want to consider it.

    If it...

    You're doing it right. I was telling you guys what two possible ways are to install the timing gears. If you do it either way I was mentioning it is the same thing. Don't worry about it.

    I was...

    What I mentioned is the same thing with the difference being that method is easier to see.

    No, that isn't true. Once you set all of the torque specs necessary (mains, rods, crank/cam bolt, head bolts) they won't break loose from heat. It is necessary to readjust the valves after the...

    A 302 will make power at a higher RPM and it will rev faster. A 351 will make more torque and have peak HP at a lower RPM, since all that is changed is the stroke. If you gain HP from going to a...

    I've been drag racing competitively for a while and know why straight cylinders are important.

    With knowledge he so vastly acquires, he couldn't be out of his mind.

    Nobody in their right minds are going to recommend possibilities that have potential for failure. Cross hatches go deep being the reason it is visible even on a high mileage motor. Even thought you...

    It's irresponsible to put a motor together without a fresh block. The rings will never seat properly if you don't have the cylinders straightened up and/or honed depending on the cylinder's...

    I personally like the look of a little bit of overspray here and there.

    Why the bright blue?
