As you can likely tell from the pistons, I requested that the compression be raised a bit over what we had in the Warhack block. I think we went with 10:1 instead of 9.5:1 if I remember correctly.

Well, I got an email from Bryan saying that he is waiting on the correct length push rods to be delivered on Monday. So my guess is that the block won't actually be shipped until Tuesday.

I'm going to be taking the cradles back to Chris early on Monday so he can start putting that stuff back together in preparation for the engine to show up perhaps later in the week. They turned out OK looking, but to get them perfect would likely take another YEAR of work. Man, getting them all shiny was a LOT of work! My wrists are killing me from handling the angle grinder and Dremel tool....

OK, here's the pics of the front and read cradles after I finished up polishing them. I probably could have spent another couple of weeks (or more) but I guess this will do for parts that no one will ever see when they are put back in the car....

They look great Rich. No one will be able to see them but you will know how good they look.

Does this help? You can just make out the second chain.
