        picked up balanced assembly today....Kb pistons about 50 grams heavier then the SRP...I did not know SRP had .070 360 pistons...otherwise would have went with them.

        see if we can get the short block assemble next week.....will be in Bakersfield this weekend....

              Well....The heads are on the engine...mocked up the rockers...but I dont think I have any pushrods that fit this .....but since I got a big box of them...I will dig thru and see what i got .....or measure them and order a set from Smiths brothers.....No big hurry...since the track is not opened and being torn up for the 4 wide crap....got a few more projects to do before the race season opens...

              I love these rocker shaft hold downs........and these heads were purchased several years ago....they are the speedmaster CNC version.....So they are next up....

                It would be cool to fill all 4 lanes with your cars all a once? Nice family video... triple or quadruple wheelies! LOL

                Setup adjustable pushrods and got length needed...at least i thought it was...dug thru my boxes of pushrods....everything too long...came up with 7.26.....never had any that short...was wondering about the lifters and if the lifters seat was different...nope...I used this cam and lifters in the 71 Duster...so...about to pick up the phone and call Smith's ....decided to take a second look...well...noticed that the lifter was not on the heal of the cam...dud...Thought I was on number 1 firing ..i was on 6....LOL.......get things corrected...come up with 7.58"....same length i had ordered once before..

                but as I was hurrying..using battery operated impact gun...to screw rockers hold downs in and out faster..I screwed up one of the Heilcoils in one of the pedestals....took me a bit of time to get the old one out...ran tap and put a new 5/16 heilcoil in...done.

                So moving on....waiting for pushrods and new adjusters for the old crane 1.5 rockers...

                I would have bought an intake gasket and two head gaskets and screwed it back together.

                ok....this engine is coming back to life...the SM CNC heads from SM are coming off....and a pair of Imm ported SM heads are going on...along with the KB 744 .070.....has Scat I beam rods instead of the H beams....MP 590 cam...not sure about what Intake will be on it....either Holley SD or Eddy victor 340...Crane ROLLER rockers...1.6 Intake 1.5 Exhaust...Probably going to use the TTi 1 7/8 headers since they are half way on the car....

                We changed the gearing in the car for the 408 from 4.56 to 4.30...the 4.30 will stay......Changing to TA4400 series converter with 2.74/154 geared 904 to make up for the 4.30 gears....
                Stay tune....1st TnT on Jan 18...

                  Got the old heads off....got the ported SM heads on today...got the rockers back on and adjusted the valves.
                  Need to get an intake manifold....

                  Ran into a problem...was priming the oil pump....pump showed over 100 psi...and I was hand cranking it...
                  Try it again tomorrow and probably drop the pan....

                      dropped oil pan today.....changed out pump.....primed again....just over 70 psi...will check out that pump later...probably the relief spring is stuck....

                      was going to put holley sd on engine but...things do not line up well...and so I am using the eddy 340 victor that went to IMM with the heads...fits perfect....did not have any RTV left over after resealing the oil pan...so tomorrow get the intake on...finish off the trans...and get it all bolted together...

                      Should be running this weekend.....
