I've been without a car that can do a burnout for more then a year.... I'm starting to get the shakes - though with that thought, I should probably glue some 220 grit DA disks to my hands and get to it on the bodywork...

well it looks like many burn outs are in the future for sure.

so first a fright
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
notice the cam plate bolt holes? anyone want to hazard a guess as to whether or not a Gen 4 or Gen 5 cam and timing set is required? the block is an 89

fortunately, I have other stuff to do
I've finally given up - I'll buy the tapered ring compressors for all my builds - this one will work also with my Buick motor but I am not doing the hateful compressors again...
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
then I noticed that the numbers on the rods are not the same as the numbers on the pistons.... the seller told me that the marked numbers (yellow) matched the holes so I went with that - but the rod numbers do not. I'd love to hear why he didn't number the rods correctly (they were resized) oh well.. I'm sure when HRM takes this motor apart in a few years they'll make much ado about how the rods were on the wrong journal... to them I say "HA"
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
after number 2 I had to go do SAR stuff.... ah well, things are progressing
for those interested - Gen 4.... gave me a heart attack though when I saw that....there are no pedestals - which means that had I noticed before, I could have done away with the cam button.... ah well.

I added another holley carb to my collection - in reality, I think I'll use the body from my blower carb and the base (since I modified it) from this carb.... totally worth it to do
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
the aforementioned blower carb
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
right or wrong these were the decision. Stainless Elgin full roller rockers. Thought seriously about the aluminum but know that the guy with the 427 in his boat had nothing but trouble with them.... so here it is
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
maybe I should just stack this scoop on top of the current one....
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

2 degrees off. instead of 4 advanced it's 2 degrees advanced. close enough
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

so this is the bearing on the back to keep from eating into the block (and of more concern putting showers of iron in the oil)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

most of the time tonight was spent adjusting to zero lash on the cam... but it's done
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

next issue is on the floor
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

I suppose I could fill the gap with silicone.....
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

I am concerned about oil pan clearance - not cross member because that's actually in front of the motor, but how close the pan is to the ground... ah well, if it was easy, Pirate 4x4 could do it.

I'm interested to see how much that single plane intake sticks up. Dual planes are a tough fit.

Definitely want pan road clearance. Speed bumps can otherwise be a b____.

I'm interested too.... one way or another, I'll make it fit, but that worry is front and center.
