And now I'm tired and sore. LOL

Got .003 Main bearing clearance and .002 on the rods. Cam degreed fine, had a little trouble getting the Milodon pan on over the girdle. Opened up the intake gasket's to match the ported heads and intake. It'll have almost 13-1 compression now too.
I'll put it in the car tommorow after church.
Time for a hot-tub after a little bbq.

Bitchin'

What did you change to raise the compression? That's a big jump from where it was, isn't it? COOL

Yep,

Arron milled, and ported the Vic Jrs and the intake.

It's going back together with your old fuel pump too Todd.
