Cleaned up the collector on the TT header, enlarged the mounting holes and modified the head flange to fit with the Weber manifold. Will be sandblasted, painted and then wrapped, to try to keep the temps down on the backside of the motor.
Cleaned, descaled and did some minor sandblasting on the block, pretty ready to go to the machine shop once I decide on pistons. Could send it up early and have the shop get a jump on it....the distributor hold down threads need to be heli-coiled, as half of them pulled out of the block, when it was in my DD 2 years ago.
Sent the crankshaft off to Jarod at SCCH in California, weighed 31lbs without the internal trigger wheel when I sent it off, should weight somewhere closer to 25-26 when I get it back in a couple weeks.
Still waiting on an email from USRT about the guides they have listed on their site, if i don't hear from them tomorrow I'm just going to buy them from TT, I'm tired of waiting. Then the head goes off to the machine shop to be tanked, new guides put in, 3-angle valve job, and rebuilt. Then I can CC the chambers and if need be, do some minor tweaking to even them out.
Need to stop stalling and just buy the rods, I'm going with IE ones, because I never got a response back from any SCAT carriers on how much they weigh.
Then it's between JE and Wiseco pistons. Oh so many decisions.
