Well the engine is at JNW Engine & Machine Shop in Santa Rosa, who was recommended by Terry. Jerry there is very knowledgeable and knows his shit.
There was a ding in the cylinder wall caused by the broken valve head so he rough machined the block to find out how much oversize we were gonna have to go and it cleaned up right at 0.060", so there's still enough to machine for the extra marine clearance with a 0.060" over piston. He also align bored the block and corrected an issue with the thrust bearing cap.
Friday I'll be able to get him the money to order the rotating kit. We're going with one of Eagle's competition rotating assemblies which includes:
Eagle forged 4340 internally balanced crank
Eagle H-beam rods
Clevite H-series bearings
SRP forged pistons part #141636
Milodon blueprinted high volume anti-cavitation oil pump
Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads
Comp Cams Xtreme Marine XM278H cam
Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap manifold (same as before)
Hopefully by the end of the month I'll have the whole motor payed off and ready to assemble in April. If all goes well she should be back on the water by early-mid May.

man the extra stoke makes big hp difference and the time/cost for machining would have been very low. The rotating cost should have been near the same $$. You could clearance the block home with the right tools and then only have to clean before assy.
