Okay parts update.
The Mallory Crank Trigger for the project came in today.
Thanks to Mike Lee at Race Proven Motors for the support.
www.raceprovenmotors.com



Temporary Curtain to keep the heat in the back half of the garage.
Wait till you see the permanent curtain.



It's all organized and ready to work.



So in the end.
16 - 2 x 8 x 20 foot boards
21 - 2 x 6 x 8 foot boards
10 - 4 x 8 x 1/2" sheets of plywood
3 - 8.6' x 11.6' Tarps
1 - Attic Ladder
1 - Fluorescent Light
4800 Staples (arm really hurts)
One Hammer Stapler
6 Rolls of R-13 Insulation
5 Rolls of R-19 Insulation
146 Pro Vents for the Vaulted Ceiling (not foreseen in the budget)
2 - Craftsman Rolling tool chests (also not in the budget)

It's complete and I'm to tired to work on the truck.
Did I also mention my wife never complained once during this project and all the hours I spent working in my garage.

Good Morning All,

Things are Finally falling into place.

The Guy's the Crew @ Rockford Racecraft have starting working on the motor.
It's ready to be assembled.

Quick Picture of the Pistons from JE ( 4.125 bore )




After Coating and before Coating.

The piston coating is a "cermet thermal barrier coating" designed for high temperature/pressure applications and is especially suited for piston domes in forced inducted and nitrous motor applications.

The bearing coating is a dry film lubricant coating applied at micron thickness and used to prevent scuffing, galling, and reducing reciprocating friction.

This work is done in house and turn around is very quick.

Good Morning All,

Guy and Crew at Rockford Racecraft are getting ready to inspect the block for external flaws.



They found some flaws that would have to be taken care of before it could be painted.
See the Left Hand side of the block.



Just a close up view.




Needed to get the temporary hardware organized. We plan to install all new hardware on the truck.
We will keep you posted as to whom we choose.



Had to put the motor together so I can work on the Turbo support brackets.

Good Morning All,

Sorry work has really been kicking my butt the last two weeks.
Still working on the truck instead of sleeping.

Guy cleaned up the burs and casting flaws on the block.



The front of the block was pretty nasty. Looks very good now.
Can't wait to paint the block.



Put all the cladding back on the truck. Getting it ready for final Fit.
Only one piece of cladding left to make in Fiberglass.
So I headed off to VFN Fiberglass.



Dennis over at Hi Speed Welding Remade the Grille insert in Steel.
