Interesting, I've been curious what percentage of people are mistrusting / questioning the official story. Seems quite a lot. I've gone off the deep end into this so I won't get going here especially on a 60 series forum... but good to hear your guys's perspectives. Just trying to keep the build going with all this virus is throwing at us.^^^^^what she said. re: the distrust. seems like any more i'm in the group of "don't believe anything you hear n only 1/2 of what you see"
good to see you on felicity, it's been a while
I think after my second measurements I’m good anyhow.. per the book.felicity, the redneck enginerd in me says run it, cuz wear down the road will open it up. if i'm reading your posted specs correctly it's only 4 10thousandsth tight. you might be able to pick that up with scotch brite used on the thrust surface. if any of the engine builders on here read this, please correct me if i'm wrong.
Oy! I didn’t do them this time... hehe f***. I did it last time I put stuff together late fall and they were right on... so, I’ll be going w/ that reading. Edited, found that I had only done the mains which were 0.002 inches. I found that I had not done the con rods. So when I flip over the block to do the oil pan, I'll pull a cap and see what it shows. That will be later tho... gotta do some bee stuff and go get food and water at the spring.Looks good. What is your main and rod bearing clearances using the plastigauge?
Sorry if that was earlier but I didn't see it.
