IDK man rod bolts are super easy to get. Especially for a 302 lol.
Yeah, it works real good. The hammer got in a few tight spots around the timing cover area, but on longer edges, like the deck surfaces and the oil pan surface, I could just run the hammer along those edges and the tape came right off just perfectly.Thats a neat trick on the tape. I've always had a hard time getting those edges to tear clean.
Thanks good sir.Very nice work man! I knew you could pull it off. Engine looks amazing. This build reminds me of my teen years. I used to work on my dads 82 mustang I remember falling asleep under the freaking car all the time.
woah woah woah dude
You can't just go and assemble a short block yourself, man, **** could have blown up! You're lucky nothing went wrong, that you still have all your fingers, and that you didn't tear a damn hole in the space-time continuum!
Thank you my good man. I'm 20 right now, and am only able to do most of this engine work because of all the research I did before I jumped into this build. The research was also why I knew how to fix that stuck lifter.Very interesting read and build. I knew you could assemble it. I assembled mine at 19.
No boost for me. Too expensive. Not only due the cost of a turbo / supercharger itself, but also, the cost of the parts I would have to buy to support / hold up to it. Like the plumbing, intercooler, blow-through setup, stronger engine internals, stronger clutch, stronger transmission parts, etc.Using the hypereutectic pistons I'm assuming your staying NA?
