    Starting from Scratch


    Here are some parts so far for my Go Big Build










    I'll have the Engine & Blower Tomorrow
    Bored 60 over. SRP Flat top Pistons, JE Rings, Comp Ultra Gold Roller Rockers.
    Big thanks to those out there. My Bro Marqo who Helping me through this whole deal. On the fast track and the Mechanic Kyle, A youngster that has some smarts. Not to forget my little buddy Howie who's there for entertainment value and a hand And all the East & West Siders offering up all there help.

    A bunch of people behind the scenes here on PB giving some sound advice. I listen to all of you. If I were better off I would of had a new chiller. If this needs one it will get one. New or Used.

    Busy day today. Polished up a few parts of the blower
    Here’s the mock up. My buddy Howie cleaned all the little stuff. I took the oil pump apart and found a few aluminum shavings. Took the pump apart and got them all out.



    Here’s my bro Marqo, Chief Mechanic.


    The Build is getting Bigger




    All polished up




    Should have the heads by Thursday. There is a ton of stuff left. I need most of the gaskets, Need to rebuild the carbs and buy new linkage, install the pully shaft. a mile of Stainless Steel braided line and all the fixens that go withem.
    Getting real close
