    I kinda fell dumb asking this but is there anything I am forgetting before I get everything tore down and notice that I forgot something... here is what I have
    rod&main bearings,gaskets,sealer,oil,filter,caliper's,torque wrench,oil pump,pickup tube and assembly lube
    <font color=red>please tell me if I am forgetting anything</font color=red>
    and if anyone has any tips to make it go quicker I would greatly appreciate the info

    TIA

    Thats everything, and go slow and double check all clearences on the bearings becasue tha last thing you want to do is do it all over again.

    Calipers work to, but plas. works even better.

    Ok, how do I find out what the clearances are and how to use a plasti-gage. Im getting ready for the same thing.

    Still hoping the GOV'T will ban the use of loud stereos with RAP music. [​IMG]
