Yep, glad your back Peter. I know what you mean about the life issues. I have been dealing with those for a few years now, and still looking at quite a few more.

Hope to see some more of your photos.

Yes, life does get in the way of these pretty projects. :mrgreen:

My machinist is double checking everything in terms of measurement since most of this happened three years ago. ... :shock: The block is going together, and we will check valve clearance. Since I have Shelby18's 9.6 pistons, it should be all good, but better safe than sorry. I found a set of Isky chrome moly pushrods, but now I have to exchange my Harland Sharp rocker adjusters for cup instead of ball, since the Isky's have balls on both ends. Not a big deal. Once I get the block together, I can put the two housings back on that hold the engine legs. That means the engine can go on a cradle for the rest of the assembly..... and I can fuss with it all winter. I'm looking forward to it.
