      well...all the parts for the short block are here.....but making decisions every day on the heads....valve springs are not that old..but I ordered a new set probably will change out the retainers and locks too...plus I have a set of 2.08 intakes already....

      Washed the block today...soap and water...blew compressed air everywhere...brake cleaner...wd40..tranny fluid...wiped down bores .....Tonya helped me put crank in..and torque it down....it still spins easy ..lol....mount pistons and rods tomorrow...

        Yesterday got the pistons and rods reassembled...spiro locks were a breeze....
        need to bust rod caps off this afternoon...and probably start filing rings...I got one those fancy Proform ring filers ....time to see how it works...

        Got the rod caps loose....
        did a dry run on the ring gaps...seems like we are pretty close..... Top ring is .018 2nd ring is .020 out of the box....

        Speed Pro recommends top .018 and .022 as minimum ......

        The driver of the 71 Dart was helping me put the rings on the pistons and knocking them in....I kept reminding her that the dot goes up and on piston she had the 2nd ring upside down, she went to remove top ring and it snapped in two....i wonder if the gap is ok on both sides of the ring now...LOL

        Found a single piston set at Jegs .......lol

        Finally got around to checking the deck height on the 7 pistons that we were able to install....this block had been decked once before and that guy screwed it up...anyway...hats off to Vegas Machine here in Vegas......all 7 pistons are at +.018.....I am willing to bet Number 8 will be the same...lol

        took the cylinder heads for a ride this weekend to Indio...dropped them off there...Plus Crackedback and I went to a high school football game....had a wonderful evening...lol

        Got the old Hughes 6064 installed and youngest daughter help dial it in...First go we hit 106 on a 106...second shot was a 102/103 ...close enough for a former government employee...a long with the government employee driver.


        and put one of those PIA tensioners on it also...Found it on Amazon for 29 bucks with Free Shipping...well...you pay for amazon prime....Found a good deal on a set of 360 pistons there also a couple of months ago...

        NO...I went to Indio just to watch a High School football game..lol
