How long were the new rods?
Setting the end gap on the rings.
Installing the piston, after the rings have been gapped.
Ran into a small problem with the rods hitting the block. I had dry fit the pistons earlier to check deck height, but didn't check rod clearance.
Had to tear it down, which sucked to lose the time. Toss the block in the mill and add some clearance.
All better now.
Very nice, CJ!
I don't think you need instructions.
So you don't suck the pan dry on long sweepers (which I've done before with a previous engine in this car). It turns out I'm not going to be able to use that pan. I have another with the doghouse, but not the additional capacity. It goes on tonight along with the oil cooler and such. Subframe and engine comes out of the car tomorrow. I'm trying to have it back in and running by September 7th, so I have time to shake it down before the VCOA National in SLO on September 20th.Whats the reason for larger oil capacity?
