First and foremost I would like to thank Richard for his hospitality and generosity for having us at his place for 4 days doing this engine build. It was the best learning experience one could ever have and I will never forget that.. After purchasing this car back in 2008 I have never done anything to the engine. It ran great so I left it alone and just drove the car. Well recently it developed a slight noise so it was time to pull it and see just what was causing this slight noise..... We tore it down and the bearings were shot! So I called Richard Clark and he said to bring it up to his place and we will build it together so the following week or so we headed over to Richard Clark's place to build new life into this engine... There Richard, Myself and my good friend Gary Tarwater began the build process of: Line Honing the block Ball honing the cylinders slightly Clean block & crank in Hot tank Balancing the rotating assembly (As Richard say's "To NASCAR specs") Yes it was that nice! Blueprinting the engine Blueprinting the Oil Pump File fit the rings to each cylinder Install new cam bearings Freeze plugs Tested several sets of new valve springs to find the best set for this build Assemble the engine All this and back home in only 4 day's!!!! Everything, and I mean everything of this build process was documented an written down on several blueprint forms supplied by Richard. The best part of this is the fact that I had my own hands on this build and know everything about it.... Here are some pictures of the build.... The block is now on Richards flimsy little stand! LOL Parts all set out on the table JE Pistons / Carillo Rods / L19 ARP Rod bolts Richard Installing the Bob weights on my crank... I should say, showing me how to install them! Rotating Assembly ready for balancing.... ( balanced within 1 gram ) Ready for the ride home! Scot W.
