    Dogman,

    Check my .sig

    I corrected it to reflect "reality".... the crank is a standard 396 crank....so with a .030" overbore (if THAT is true) would make it a 402?

    It's all up to Scott.....I'm lost without his help!

    We're supposed to get together over the weekend to tear the engine down. I'm gonna pull the top end stuff off (rockers, pushrods, heads) and he will deal with the bottom end stuff. I guess you gotta mark the position of all the lifters so they go back into the same exact spots.....
