OK--I asked Bill, machinist, to check the mains to insure that they are round and parallel. Not sure if that was correct because he looks sort of confused The other guy that is there, looks like perhaps the owner as he is always in the office, responded, "no problem".

So>>>>I picked up the engine today and it looks pretty good. The pistons are now .035 in the hole. I think I mentioned that I'm having the stock heads worked by a local guy that does work for the racing crowd. As I explained everything that I've learned here about the heads he nodded and said no problem.

So>>He is cutting the heads, installing 2.02/1.60 valves, guides, porting the heads and intake, springs and retainers. Estimate was about $750.00. I need recommendations on assembling the engine, (gasket type and thickness etc) what cam and are my stock injectors going to be OK?

The guy doing to heads said he would give me some recommendations re: cam etc, but I've come to realize that some of what I hear "in the street" is BS. The information I get from you guys puts me in a better position to make the best decision for my motor.

Thanks so much
