    Anything new? I've just gotten my head back from the machine shop, going to order timing guides and chains soon. Get them installed and be on my way.

    I know our projects are at about the same exact stage right now, so igs nice to do a comparison.

    Well I decided to pull the pistons back out yet again, because it still didn't want to rotate freely...

    I'm still getting wear marks on the bearings, which leads me to believe that at least two out of the four connecting rod bearings were the wrong size. So, I'm going to order a full new set and hope that they actually are the right size. I did use plastiguage to check the oil clearance, but obviously it wasn't totally accurate.

    Yours will most likely be done far before mine at this rate. lol
