I still plan on getting evrything balanced. I have my pistons, rods and crank and rod and main bearings. The block is all done from the machine shop which included clean, honing, bore to .030, cam bearings and freeze plugs. I will post pics later. Tonight I am going to press my own rods.
BTW, the CR depends a lot on the cam specs.

If you are going to press the pins to mount the pistons, do you have the know how and where-with-all to do this? I've built a few engines, and I don't press on my own pins/pistons...
