Just started putting it together..........LAST NIGHT.....For the second time.
Had it all assembled 2 months ago...BUT...
Owner...... I wants 4 bolt mains.
Me..... Those are hard to come by on short notes
Owner....... I will find some !
Me...... Go for it...All there going to do is have more shit exiting the oil pan..
(Two week later)
Me.... I open the box....''These would look good if we had a small block Chevy"
Owner...Send them back!!
Me...... NO return on OBS parts or on sale item's ...... Lets just leave it together.
Owner.....I will find them!!!

TWO months and 4 missed races later we have a custom set of spaded 4 bolt caps.
I will post the company later if anyone is interested..
They look nice. But the motor shop tells us they need a LITTLE bit of work to fit and not much meat to do it with..
They did get it done almost on time.(week late)

Last night I start putting it together with no help because the owner was to drunk or stoned.(I really don't need help)
All went well....Cam was a bit tight? hope to finishes it tonight and have it running on Sunday...We will see..

I feel like am in the KV zone..

So what was the final cost??

1300.00+ This dose not include the Chevy caps.
All so we can watch more parts exit the oil pan.
That's were I have been.

Ray.

You're right Ray. I remember reading way back in the '70's Roush used 2 bolt blocks in Pro Stock. Like you said just more parts to exit the block.

Today is the day are expert team of mud truck drones install the cast iron plug into the waiting hole.
This should not be to hard. Most of them stayed up till 2.00 in the morning training. Wearing a deep
path to the Frigidaire past many a dead solder. Crust and torn bud light cans from many a night of waiting
for this glories day..

Went over about 10.00.....No movement? They all seam to have some kind of brain damage ?? Call 911 maybe??

I will update when I can.. I am shore it will became a living hell of body's and motor parts any minuet now..

OK.. I am sitting here watching a spider repel from the ceiling of are surgery clean work area.
This would be great if I was stoned.....I feel so alone......

Race in two days...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Huston we have problem..!!!!!!!!!!!

The valve covers fill with oil in less than a minuet. Oil presser goes from 70 down to 20-??
This is just sitting in the garage revving it up and down. The oil will pump out of the filler caps...
Things different from old motor related with oil.

1. New melling std oil pump.
2. 3/8 push rods these things do plug up the holes a bit from 5/16.
3. mech. roller cam with some lift to it.. .780 I think?

The last time something like this happened on the motor it was standard bearings on a .010.010 crank..
I was not in on that one. But That one was lack of oil to the top or any where..

I am hoping some restricted push rods will do it for the time...Any thoughts..ideas good or bad..
