    Still plugging away! Checked P/V in a few different cam installs to see what options I have. Cam calls for a 110 install. 106 would be max, that puts me down at .090 on the intake. I plan to run it at 110, just wanted to check it incase i don’t like it at 110. Installed a gear drive, that was pretty straight forward once once you get the lash set. It was used so I had to buy some parts for it. Luckily I ended up with 2 sets of dowels. One set wasn't machined correctly and would have caused a huge headache. I might not figured that out without having the other set to look at.

      Had a few things to rectify, I think it’s ready to go together now. Exhaust push rods were too close to the block and the fillets in the crank were grabbing the main bearings ever so slightly. And she got some paint!! Time to rock!
