All the junk that will get in the oil journals. In order to clean the block out properly I would remove them. You can buy a cam bearing tool from summit for 60 or 70 bucks, and a good set of cam bearings will run ya 50 bucks. They are not hard to install, just take your time.

Add nitrous and it won't matter and you'll never know the difference.
"Profession Shop" means you paid extra for a typical Krylon rebuild.

Just think now you only need to check VTP clearance on one side of the block.

No problem just trying to save you some stress. Everytime i have taken a short cut it has bit me in the ***. The last thing you need is a chunk of crap to plug up a lifter and wipe out your cam or score up your bearings. When i get a block back from the machine shop i spend a few hours cleaning and measuring. I had a block done last year and the machine shop said it was spotless ready to go. When i got it home the thing was full of sand from when they bead blasted and baked it. When i went back to tell them about it he said he's so confident in his work that he doesnt let stuff go like that, check everything yourself. Spend a little more time and money the first time cause doing thing twice sucks.

Before you take it to the machine shop, tear it apart and use one piston and rod assembly to measure cylinders 1,7,2,8. This will eliminate any differance in the rods and pistons of the other assemblies. I pull the rings and use a lil masking tape to keep the piston snug in the bore. I feel for you, my 400 is nice and square but -.032

Thanks for all the replys guys much appreciated. I am ging to get the deck cut down so the pistons are around 5 thou in the holeand use the 38 thou head gaskets that are recomended with the heads I have. By doing this they will have to take 16 thou off one side and 32 thou off the other. Do you guys think I will also have to have some material taken off the intake so it will line up properly??
