i allso went through the valley and cleaned the rear oil return hole by making them bigger , also at the front of the block i open up the front holes and made them level to the valley floor. you can see that i also have tapped the oil return holes on the valley floor.

now it time to fit the crank and check for clearance.





clearance come out a bit tight so will have to get some .001 under size bearing. won't have the new bearings for a week or so.

this is a photo of the rods that going in. what i like about this rod is it's a 6 " with 7/16 bolt and stroker cleared. only had to clean up bottom of the bore a little and pan rail was sweet. if you look at the piston you can see it use's a skinner oil ring and the pistons pin don't go all the way in the oil ring landing like ofters do.

what did you use for piston to wall clearance? Is the p2v clearance plenty?
how close was the balance out of the box?

had too do this the old school way with feeler gauge and piston. when doing it this way you have to use the lower bottom of the piston as this is the widest point.

as for piston to valve clearance , yes plenty.

this scat was a balance kit that i got, but i had changed the pistons as the dish in the piston were to big at 19.60cc. when i had it re-balance , only had to remove 36 grams of weight from the crank so not to bad.

now this is where i got to , the last thing i did was to check the intake manafold for a line-ment. next on my list is too strip back down , paint the block , wait for the under size bearings and start final assembly.
