.060 over .... me like!! Those pistons are HUGE! Should be a stump-puller, for sure. 8-)

After getting some stupid offers for my Silverado, I've decided to just keep it & run it into the ground. What a colossal waste of money new vehicles are. I kick myself in the ass every time I think about it. What the hell was I thinking??? Proof that money clouds judgement - found that out the hard way. Sure would have loved to be driving something with an engine similar to Gene's though. :(




A little late to breakfast this morning. Went on a hellacious night time ATV ride with a buddy of mine & 7 others. Ended up getting home just before 4am. That's what happens when you rely on others for navigation. We had some other issues too - we'll just leave it at that - but that contributed to my late ( or early - depending on how you look at it :D ) arrival home through no fault of mine or my buddy's. I gotta get me one of those GPS deals I guess. I'll take a paper map any day of the week though - I'd have got a much better nights sleep if I had one! Was freezing cold, snowing like hell. I was soaked to the bone. Only had thin gloves on due to my normally excellent grip & thumb warmers, but a few miles of 40-50 mph wind chills with wet hands rendered those luxuries useless. Had to keep my visor up on my helmet so I could see where the hell I was going, so I took mile upon mile of snow, ice, below-zero wind-chills, & dust right in the eyes & face. Lost my best pair of winter gloves that I've had for 20 years (flew out of my shitty luggage carrier). But I made it home without breaking anything on me or the machine, so it was a good night. ;)

Hopefully the weather cooperates & we can break the bikes out early this season. C'mon SPRING!!

Well so much for my leftover Subway grinder. :( Bought a footlong & ate half on the way down my buddies place & was gonna eat the other half on the trail, but wasn't hungry.

Was planning on eating it for supper tonight. It was in my cooler tucked away in my luggage box during the ATV excursion -- apparently an ice pack & constant bouncing are a bad combo ....

Yuck! Even the cats wouldn't eat it ...
At least the Kit Kat bars held their own, along with my old lady nutrition drink.

well with the crank wet the oil clearence came down to .002.....perfect

the end play was also tight at .003.... was wanting .005-.007 but after a few rpm's it should get looser 8-) ...maybe nitrous will free it up :shock:
cheezy gaskets dont cut it....they came with stroker kit..
deep sump moroso earl pan for clarence , screwed up dip stick location....darn parts guy's 8-)

the 400 crank in the 350 block needs the deep clearence pang..

I hope that particular block has a lot of meat in the cylinders. The machine shop said 30 over on my Camaro engine was "all she wrote", and keeping it cool would be a challenge...they were right.

It should be fine.

Mine has a massive aluminum radiator with electric fans, high flow water pump, and an 8 quart oil pan. It would hold 160 in the staging lanes and usually be at 210-220 degrees going through the traps.

I beat my share of mustangs with the Z28, but those dam 5.0 guys with the Vortec superchargers always embarrassed me. The worst part is when the drive them to the track and beat your car that got trailed in. :cry2:
