IT IS A RARITY FOR SURE.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

I should have pistons in no more than 2 weeks. That gives me a month to assemble and install. Barring any issues I should have at least 2 weeks to spare. I have been doing all the preliminary stuff. I have heads assembled,ready to go. I am today honing block .005 over for new pistons. Crank is polished,ready to install.Immediately after long block assembly I will determine push rod lengths and order them from Trend. Trend makes the ,IMO,best rods out there. Most available in .025 increments. Exact pushrod lengths to achieve correct pushrod geometry is essential to a happy upper end.  In other words,I'm just waiting on pistons to begin assembly and yes,it will be with me. Will need to do some easy runs ,data log and do some tuning while there so I may or may not be running the shit out of it.

Well,ya,that too.  :m

 The thing about it is that I haven't used the machines for the last 5 years. I sold my seat and guide machine and have to do all head machining on the bridgeport. That slows down things but does equal or better work. Just more time consuming setting up operations.

 Parts washer burner went out and had to fix that issue. Rollover fixture in hone tank broke and had to fix that. bs1 I've honed hundreds and hundreds of cylinders in that thing and it HAS to have an issue when all I need to do is hone another 8 cylinders?  Oh well rebuild better than before is my motto. Done. Happy as hell with the improvement.

Air hoist had a seal die,had to rebuild that effer. DAMN,is everything going to get rebuilt and I have a good as new auto machine shop again?

I might just have to take up cylinder head work again since my buddy that does ALL the hi perf/race stuff in this area is moving to Arkansas soon. I did enjoy the head development work when I was doing it. Hmmmm,just heads and NO block work. I hate boring and honing the damn things. No profit and the work sux-too time consuming. WAIT!,I guess I could just set up the CNC for boring the things. Hmmmmm.................. Gotta get this  and a couple other projects out of the way and this could be a retirement thing.   Hmmmmmm.......................

I don't play hookie. No need,I just come and go as I please anymore. I'm usually gone about 11:00. I don't do much of anything anyhow other than oversee stuff and PR a lot. I got people to do the work.........................  :m ;D ;D

That's not to say I have a lot of spare time though. My days still end around 8:00. Gotta have reasons to get up every morning.

Check this shit out!!! I didn't pose my question to enginelabs but yet there it is!!! I guess JE thought it a good idea to point out to everyone INCLUDING their own people that a gas port does NOT belong where they put mine.  :m
 AND it is the first question answered. They must have felt like asses when they saw the piston I sent in. I knew I was right!  rofl

Here's a link to engine labs article and a copy of "my" question.
http://www.enginelabs.com/engine-tech/pistons/answers-david-fussner-je-pistons-drops-details-pistons/

 From enginelabs :
1) Where should gas ports be located around the piston or more importantly,where should a gas port NOT be located to not impact the pistons top ring land integrity or the pistons stability in the bore?

Wes Freedle

David Fussner: Drag racers tend to prefer top gas ports, while lateral gas ports are preferred on engines that experience extended run times that could clog top gas ports. Top gas ports and lateral gas ports are sometimes used together. As far as strength, I would not suggest placing a top gas port on a piston except through the top land, and not into a valve pocket that extends to the edge of the piston dome. The gas port, whether located in the top or laterally from the side, should not intersect the root of the ring groove, and the hole should have .005-inch minimum clearance from the root of the ring groove in either case.

In the quest for low blowby, one important point that is sometimes not considered is the significant role the lower side surface of the ring and the lower flank of the ring groove play in sealing. This interface can be greatly improved by lapping the side faces of the top ring. Our tests have repeatedly shown blow-by reductions of 35-percent or more. JE can provide this lapping procedure in house on our equipment.
