    Ok, I think I will drill some holes for the studs. Digger makes a good point regarding flex.

    Also need to shave down the oil pan baffle a bit, just catches on the oil pump at one point so...

    Thanks for the heads up. I will double check with all the windage tray bolts fully torqued, but I had the pump bolted in and it looks like it just clears the tray at the taper. That said, I don't have...

    Out of curiosity, what is the correct spec? Have a value written down in the shop, think it is 62ftlbs off the top of my head, but better to double check...

    Also, made great progress this...

    They do seem a bit high. I should actually put the valve cover on to check, but I did a quick check with my finger for reference when I first got them in and figured I had a bit of clearance. They sit...

    Not sure exactly what is going on with the pictures... need to sort out properly. Sometimes drag and drop seems to work fine, sometimes not?

    Anyway I will sort out when I have a moment....

    More progress last night. Timing goodies are in place and I managed a 'quick' test fit and turnover with the cylinder head in place.

    Plan on putty checks this afternoon, then there's a few...

    Managed to sneak out to the shop for a couple of hours.

    Re-attached timing cover and adjusted main caps, as well as measuring breakaway torque.

    First spin of the engine was...

    Yeah shouldn't be an issue. When I got the block back from the machinist they actually had a few threads poking out, obviously they managed to tighten them properly without needing a spacer or anything....

    Googling around a bit, it seems to be related to ensuring proper torque loading on the bolt. A couple of exposed threads means the threads through the bolt are all evenly/properly loaded. Makes sense...

    Looks like I did indeed miss some details on the stud installation. Great catch. Now to re-torque!

    I would definitely guess the force I put on each piston to be less than 20lbs. I may rig something up to actually check this depending on how a breakaway test goes, but that actually sounds like the right...

    Quick update, now that I am back from holidays and getting things moving again! Pistons are in! Here's a big ol dump of photos for the curious.

    One thing I would love to know, if anyone has...
