Nearly a year after kicking a rod thru the pan. Parts hold ups. Welding the block, heads, and pan. A few upgrades that required fabrication. Fired up in a 1/2 revolution. Idle oil pressure is up with new lifter bore bushings. Crank scraper installed at .060" clearance. Cam backed up from 108 to 111. 5/8" studs in the axles. Fresh trans, shocks, slicks. Carbon hood is painted. Test on Friday.
