Re: ch-100 align hone wated

Thanks Lance, I regard you highly as a man of your word and someone willing to be well prepared when picking up a machine (and willing to make a long road trip)! Someone out there please set him up with some gauges and he will be all set!!

Re: LS 3 liner OD gaps

I see this a lot on factory ls blocks. I think even new or near new blocks too. Never been a problem. I believe it's just part of the manufacturing process where the aluminum shrinks away from the sleeve slightly in spots. But yes they aren't going anywhere the cast iron sleeve is ribbed all around.

Re: Heavy carbon buildup removal

Best thing is to bake and shot blast the intake. Probably around a $60 to $100 labor cost at local shop. Or if you really want to remove it chemically -carburetor cleaner. The kind you soak the whole carb into. You're going to need a way to soak that area. I think Gunk sells it. As for the rivets......

Re: Iron crankshaft welding

I used to do Welding on a Gleason machine. As long as you use the correct wire and are good at welding cranks yes it will hold up fine. There is a different wire for forged vs cast cranks. The Ford cranks are of a premium nodular iron.

Re: SBF 8931 Hyd lifter preload

Do you think 5327 Morels will be fine for a 6500 rpm engine with 150/385#? Cam is 232/242 .544/.560 with 1.6 ratio. Or should i step up to the real spring pressure 5879's?? I think i can get away with the .700 wheel lifters but maybe not.

SBF 8931 Hyd lifter preload

So upon an exhaustive search, I am finding everything on the web from zero lash to one full turn on these lifters. Several people claim that they have called Comp and gotten different answers as well... From Comp's instructions: Hydraulic Roller Lifters Applicable Part #s: 850-16, 851-16, 853-16, 85...

Re: Boring main support

According to a GM dyno guy i know when they drilled the holes in the LS1 it was good for 15 HP on the dyno. I guess it's hard for the windage to get around the large main caps. Hence the reason they improved that method in the LS2 on up going with the block scallops around the outside of the main ca...

Re: piston skirt coatings for worn bores

Line 2 Line skirt coating just plain works! I was a huge skeptic until i was in a bind and tried them out. Lots of guys using them but they keep it a secret. I have saved many pistons and bores with their skirt coatings. Go to their website for all the tech and videos. I ran a set in a full filled b...

Re: sleeveing blocks with no crush?

I used to use the Kline glue on OLD single cylinder 1900-1910ish jugs mainly. Had to leave about .0015-.002 slip fit. I was too worried that the block would fall into pieces with all of the lead soldier and welding that held them together if I were to use a press fit sleeve. I never had one move, bu...

Re: cleaning cyl heads ?

However, the soda doesn't remove oxidation very well, from alum or steel, so it's not going to be the best for a perfect looking job on the exterior of aluminum heads that have to look uniform. And filling the pressure pot is a pain, but I have plans for an upgrade for that problem.
