So far im so impressed its super smooth and drives effortlessly, real pleasure to drive so glad Ive done it.

I would like to say big thank you for all advice.


Happy Jon.

jonnys Hello all its about time I posted and update it has being quite few months since I last posted.
Well not being good news really but had a small result yesterday.
The guy who imported my Crank, rods, flywheel and damper went missing.
I finally tracked him down and found him, paid him an un expected visit I got my pistons back and money.
So now all I have is 80 roller block and mahle 347 stroker pistons.
But do have friend shipping a pick up next month so I have small window to get parts bought and packed into this truck, so looking for advice on good deals or if anyone has anything.

I have spent this time getting bike finished and few repairs on mustang, she is running and looking really good.

Thank you for your time Gents.

It's right hand side back of bike machined piece billet to fit in frame rails to got to make cover and weld it together. Proper neat, light good use of space.

Pistons arrived today, can get rotating assembly balanced Now.

Fuel wise nothing special normal pump fuel.

if your pistons are more than .005" below the block surface you might consider running thinner ones . . cometic makes them but they are very pricey . . if you but cometics you can get them the same size as your bore which is nice sand preferred but a bit anal for a street car . .most fel pro type gaskets have a large 4.100 id which seems a bit dumb to me since you can't bore a windsor to more than .060.

you can run quench/squish clearance as low as .035" with decent parts and less than 8,000 rpm . . .042 is the max i like to see . . some others don't consider "quench" at all and often have as much as .060 on na engines.
