Jyttah is an unknown quantity at this point
I have a small update on the engine.
We finally got some of it back together.
We started with freshly honed cylinders and a beer to plan the weekend.

I ordered King Racing bearings in standard size for both main and rods

And they were installed with plastigage 0,025 inch / 0,076mm

And the result was this:

Looks pretty good so far.

Then it was time to put it together for the final time.
we used excessive amounts of Royal Purple Max-tuff assembly lube.

On to the pistons. Here we are using stock pistons, but with RIK pistonrings and ARP bolts and nuts

And again, we used Plastigage to meassure clearances. And they were perfect within spec.

When all 4 pistons were back, we installed the oilconsole, oil and waterpump

And thats how far we got that weekend.
Im hoping that we will get the radiatorsupport installed in the near future. But well see.
