Got a few more pieces on the way, ordered a new carb from Pro Systems. XC 1300 series dominator. Got a matching fuel log as well. Patrick is a real nice guy to deal with. Took time to go over the build with me, very impressed. Thanks cory

Well, finally got into machine shop. Sounds like block will be done in a week or so. Layne auto. Once the block gets done I can get everything mocked up and check clearances. Then back to shop for balancing. Thanks cory

Norm, we plan to dyno but I really don't care either way. Lol I have always tuned engines old school, looking at plugs and seat of the pants. Thanks cory

Heard from the machine shop today. Block is done, bored to 4.6, line bore checked, lifter bores checked and honed, decks finished for Cometic head gasket. Going to pick it up next week. Then I will mock it up, check rotating assembly clearances. Make sure crank counterweights clear the bulkheads. Then back to the shop for final cleaning, cam bearings and balance rotating assembly. Getting a little closer. Thanks cory

Hey all, ordered up a header kit, pretty sure it will work with the new chassis we are building as well. 2.25 primary - 4" x 14" collector. .325 flange. Just another piece to the puzzle. Learned a valuable lesson the other day, bought a 9" brace kit from summit. Never doin that again. Looked good but had to spend 3 hrs to get it close to fitting housing. It was terrible. The last one I bought from jegs took 5 minutes and was ready to weld. Thanks cory

Got a few more pieces to the puzzle ordered today, CVR vacuum pump kit. Been working on the new chassis, got the rear suspension almost done. have to get the shocks mounted yet, then start on the front suspension. Waiting on the machine shop to get rotating assembly balanced. Then start final assembly of the engine. Thanks cory

Hey all, heard from the machine shop today. Rotating assembly balanced and ready to pick up. Going to take the intake in and have the clover leaf milled out. Then have to do some blending and port work. Can finally get started on final assembly in a couple weeks.

Hopefully get it on the Dyno before winter, got to build a run stand yet. Have all the stuff, just don't have the time!!! Want to run the new grenade at home, so I can do all the little stuff, rough set timing, tweak the carb, retorgue heads and set valves hot. That way we don't have to fiddle with that stuff at the Dyno shop. Thanks cory

Started assembly of short block, rod and mains are a little tight, .002 rods and .003 mains. Ordered some 1x rods and main bearings. If I use a half shell it should out me at .0025 rods and .0035 mains. Piston clearance was right on diamonds rec of .0065. got to order head gaskets .051 thick and then some rocker stand shims from kfm. Hopefully have it assembled in a month or so.
