It took awhile, but the engine is now at Legacy Motorsports for assembly. But then again, I'm nowhere near being ready to drop the engine in the fastback.
The guy who's doing the work is very meticulous and sent me pictures of all the clearances for the rod and main bearings as it was going together. Ray is an "old school" engine builder and likes to use Plastigauge for measurements.
|Ray checked all the crank bearings for proper clearance.|
|All the bearings, both rod and cap were checked.|
|I had purchased all ARP bolts for the engine internals.|
|The assembled short block rotating assembly.|
|It's looking good.|
|The bottom end went together really well.|
|Ray wrote down all the clearances for the record.|
