I got all of my rings cut and ready to be put onto the pistons. I went and got my head gaskets, exhaust gaskets and my break-in oil locally. I had to order a Moroso Hi-Volume oil pump with the welded pickup.
I installed two pistons and checked the deck height. I am going to be able to use Fel-Pro MLS .041″ thick head gaskets. The compression ratio will be about 14.25:1 or a little less.
Tomorrow I will start installing pistons. I should be able to test on Friday, June 12, if things keep going well. I am not going to push myself.
Bracket Masters Racing Team and State Capitol Raceway have decided to have a Top Doorslammer class at the Fathers Day Race on June 20, 2015. Call Tarrus Jones for details. The flyer has not been updated yet.
