Just think,the .937 keyway lifter bushings and maching to SB2.2 lifter pattern is $1700 of it by itself. I saved enough on the NOS Morel lifters to pay for the bushing install.  LOL!! Easy come,easy go.

Yup. $30K of parts paid for and now playing the 4-6 month (if I'm lucky)waiting game. What did take 30 days before covid BS now takes forever. Problem is that I still need to order titanium valves and springs, shaft rockers and pushrods but can't order them till I get the engine mocked up whenever the block gets here. Every focking thing is custom on these damn things.  Bright spot is they should "only" take 5-7 weeks according to Liberty and T&D.  In other words all I have gotten done is spend money. :m

 That's the short version. I'll fill you in next week.

I have a block!!!!! I have crank/rods /pistons/rings/custom cam, etc.. I have everything for the short block!!!!! I have heads being revised at Speier Racing Heads being modded to my liking for endurance use. Soooooo,another 3 months and I will be able to begin mock up. What should have taken 3 months has ,as usual, became a much longer than normal process.  I must say the wait was worth it for the block. Dart did a really fine job with it.  If I should decide to later do anything I want to with it power wise, I can do so with confidence it is up to the task. Same goes for the Callies crank/rods. I doubt I do it but a supercharged version could be i the future as I get bored with 900ish N/A hosses.

Technically heads are ready for install but I have been wishy-washy about using the 6/7 mm valve stem sizes. I finally made my mind up late in the game after all this time that I just wasn't going to use the tiny stems even though they do just fine for 1000 laps at 9K in Nascar trim. I want to have reliable use for at least 5K miles before needing a freshen up. Sooooo,that's why Speier has the heads now getting new guides/seats/coated titanium valves and a new 5 angle valve job. Now I will be happy.

That makes 3.   The Ti valves are out 3 months.  :m  Who knows how long it will really take. I should have made my mind up a long time ago. Oh well. The 360 will just have to do for now.
