I have removed both heads and removed the cam, the only problem I see so far is the cam has the beginning of ware marks on #3, 4 & 5 exhaust lobes. You can see the marks, but cannot catch them with your fingernail. Since all my valve train parts are Comp Cams, and are rebuildable, I am going to send the lifters and rockers back for freshening up. I’ll ask about the cam, and send it back, if necessary.

The pan is not off yet. I am going to remove the pistons from the rods and get the rods reconditioned and add some new ARP rod bolts.

I hope I don’t have to do anything to the crank. I will get the block honed and cleaned. I will have a lot of time to clean up my other parts and get ready for taking measurements and assembly.
