I'm hoping when I'm back in Va this spring or summer that I will get to see you run.
You absolutely can do that. Just message me and I’ll make sure we link up. Things are moving along nicely now

I certainly am hoping so. I’m pushing to make April at VMP and there is a big stick car race in NC in June that I really want to hit up.

The mains came in. This week is hectic with Kids events but I’m hoping to get out to the garage sometime over the weekend.

I still have some minor buttoning up to do but the short block is essentially done.

Tire Automotive tire Bottle Rim Tread

Also got a replacement ATI balancer in, cause I was an idiot and used a 3-Jaw puller instead of the correct tool. Save yourself head aches and money folks. Get the correct tools for any job.

Lastly I pick up the ported heads from the machine shop on Tuesday. They are getting resurfaced for good measure.

And then I decided to put the front cover back on along with the oil pan. Also got the rear main seal installed. This short block is ready to go back in the car.

Nice progress! At that rate you'll be up and running in no time.
