4/27/05My engine block is currently at My friend Gary's machine shop. His shop is LARRY'S MACHINE SHOP Named after his old boss.At the machine shop, my block is being baked, shot cleaned, bored and honed, decked, and final washed for painting.The next set of things to go to the machine shop are the crank, rods, pistons (already there for the boring), balancer, and brand new Centerforce Steel Flywheel.The Nodular Crank shall be machined 10/10 and cross drilled. The end shall also be drilled for a pilot bushing.The pistons will will have the pins pressed on and the entire rotating assembly shall be balanced.My Cyl. Heads shall have the valve guides loosened. ( Edelbrock manufactures the heads with a tight fit. This is good for the street, because there is less unnecissary movement. But in racing, the High RPM produces heat that expandes the material and eventually causes it to seize.)Yesterday I bought a new Harmonic Balancer through Maddog Racing for $59 shipping (ofcourse).
