04-17-2011 07:22 PM 1930u 392 mounted up
The trans and bell housing fit up well with the Hemi/Chevy adapter but I have a clearance problem with the trans adapter and the oil filter adapter.

04-17-2011 07:12 PM 1930u 392 finally between the rails
I haven't posted for awhile but I have been staying busy. Here's the recent progress. I have had all sorts of fit and alignment problems. Mostly with the after market parts. Today I got the engine mounted up.

03-23-2011 08:47 PM 1930u- More measuring
Today I dropped the heads and rocker arms on without a gasket to check piston to valve clearance. All the books said there would be plenty of room with only a .500" lift and they were correct. The clay impression was well over .125". I used a sold lifter for the test.

03-23-2011 08:36 PM 1930u- Measuring the push rods
Since I'm using a reground cam the base circle is smaller than stock cam and requires the use of adjustable push rods or order to set the correct lifter preload. One complete turn of the adjusting nut equals .032". Comp spec. for this cam is .030". I usually set them at .040" I also had a buddy stop over and help me find top dead center with a degree wheel and check the cam specs.

03-22-2011 08:09 PM 1930u Rocker shaft removal
I just thought I'd add this as general info. My core plugs arrived today. Here's my technique for removing and assembling the rocker arm shafts ...leaving the rockers and springs in place. I used the head studs as a holding fixture and I cut off a piece of PVC pipe and used it as an arbor. It works great to remove and install the shafts.
