It's been a long build and finally getting near finished. I figured it would be better to start a new thread for the write-up on EdonShanno's blown 588. It's not quite done yet as we're still waiting on a few more parts, but the hard part is done.
Here are the build details:
588ci BB Chevy, 1471, pump gas, 8.45:1cr
4.56 bore x 4.50 stroke
Dart Big M block 10.2" tall deck w/ billet caps
Bryant billet crank with a bunch of Mallory
JE reverse dome pistons
JE 52S .200" straight wall wrist pins
Total Seal AP series rings; steel top, Napier 2nd, high tension oil.
Oliver billet 6.535" rods
ARP hardware throughout
Block prep; as usual, lots to be done here:
After the block is prepped, it's ready for machining. All our block machine work is done on a RMC V30 4 axis CNC. This block was bored, decked, and had the lifters bored for .903" lifters, while at the same time correcting any location errors (indexing to cam). We also check the cam tunnel for location and straightness. The mains are also checked and honed as necessary.
