I have all the parts now. Just gonna pick up new set of bearings and gaskets and then I can assemble the engine with the mechanical roller.

Here's a video from my old setup with hydraulic flat tappet cam, 0-6000 rpm:

While doing a search here for stroker info, I ran across this thread. It's old-ish, but I still want to bring this to anyone's attention that may also see it.

I don't use Speed-O-Motive, so I cannot personally vouch for the accuracy, but the member who posted this is also trustworthy, IMO. Here's what he had to say on the subject, Post #13:

Online info is mostly hearsay. S-O-M may be fine. BUT- as always- verify ALL, trust NOTHING that you've not independently verified or know to be correct. Caveat emptor, et cetera.

Some other links- not "cherry picked", these were all on the first page of a 600,000-hit google for "Speed-O-Motive problems with":

This is no reflection one way or the other to anyone who has a differing opinion and if S-O-M is better than their press leads me to believe, I'd welcome the info.
