$900 delivered. For the price, they're amazing. They need a couple hours each of porting, polishing, and edge-dulling.... but heavens.... I may get them shaved too, 9.5:1 is a bit low for my goals.

well, news is still news.

I figured, based upon measuring, that I'd need to do a split 20/30 under bearing, I was right....

at least the deck height is zero... too bad,
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
and I put some color on it
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

too bad - did I say too bad, yep. with 119cc heads instead of the 110 cc that I got with the motor the compression ratio is a disappointing 8.97:1. I can help it with .027 head gaskets (which are .012 thinner then the FelPro) and bring it to 9.17:1 but I think I'm going to either have to deck the block and/or deck the heads as well to get the 10:1 that I desire.... not a huge deal, but I'm not building a swill-gas-motor so steps will be taken.

In that vein, worked on the transmission today
these are what stopped me (and a ball bearing that is MIA).... I forgot to ask the PO how he did this to the snap rings, though probably a good thing I didn't, they look like there was a war.

a brief modification of a box to make removal of parts easier

for having three teeth floating around inside, it looks really good inside (and the synchros are in great shape
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
and yeah, missing teeth
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
have the gear, no idea what I did with my bearing splitter... ah well, I need more snap rings too
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

bright side is I found the motor mounts that I was looking for - of course, the person who needed them got mounts a couple weeks ago. Par would be finding the bearing splitter 2 weeks after I buy another.

I love tools that are older then me but work well for their purpose... 1950 Cornwell
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

pulled the heads apart so I can take them down to be decked.. they don't look bad - honestly, I'd recommend them so far.... as you'll see why through these pictures
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
the shop didn't touch the heads other then the machine work to put the valves in and their seats... all driver-quality stuff too. I'm impressed with the work - they seem to have taken the "we'll spend a couple extra dollars for the stuff we have to machine, but stuff like valve springs, retainers, and clips we'll cheap out" which is excellent because those are a lot cheaper to redo then someone setting a seat in crooked or whatever.
nice, undercut stainless valves - note the 3 angle valve job. Not unobtainium, not necessarily race, but a dang good start
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
same with the intake
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]


they do need porting and I suppose a 5 angle cut on the valves (not going to). The ports need blending and (of course) port matching the intake... but here's why I like these - all stuff you can do at home without anything more then patience and a good dust mask...

a bit was accomplished on the motor
first step was put the dowels back in the block
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
and then set the gaskets on
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
a nice coating of dykem
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
then pull the crank
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
and set the heads on to mark them
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
and to verify clearance of the valves
not a lot but good enough
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
hmmm....I'm not sure, but I think these might cause a leak
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
waiting on gaskets so I can mark then blend the intake and do the porting
