Re: 25 year old wife and mother, needs help

I noticed on the update for her today it said she had a cough reaction and a small twitch to pain. Like they posted it's a baby step but it's a good sign.

Re: Main bearing clearance

Nate,

Re: Main bearing clearance

Thanks for the input guys at this point I think we will just put this in a different block and go with our normal .0025 to .003 clearance and do something with this block later on. Appreciate the responses.

Re: Main bearing clearance

Yes I measured it and micd the crank journal how could I come up with the clearance without doing that. How do I know that? Because I saw the hack job that the machine shop did.

Main bearing clearance

Have a friend that had a machine shop align
hone the mains. I've checked it with the bore guage and it's going to be about .004 clearance. I've never run anything with more than .003 This is strictly a race motor bit it's a circle track piece what do you pros think?

Does anyone have any flow numbers for the Promaxx 225 cnc heads for a sbc. Not trying to hijack thos thread just wondered if the exhaust had similar issues on the chevy.
