I'm 90% sure the 304 currently in there is toast...
I'm just messing with ya man... that's what everyone says... it would be nice to be able to keep it all IH .. but sometimes ..ya gotta do what ya gotta do man...

at this point the engine appears to be seized... Once I get around to starting really digging into it I'll see the extent of the damage but its not looking pretty

And now...

Not a lot of progress today.

Todays excitement started with setting the end play for the cam.
Bolted up the cam gear with 0* advance, pressed and aligned the crank gear.
This is my first time using gear drives on a NON Harley. Had to take the thrust pilot down about .075
Then I clearanced the idler gear axle .110 before she fit correctly.

Must have installed and removed the timing cover 20 times, but it was worth it. Can't wait to hear the whine of these gears.

Moved on to the heads, set the Fel-Pro’s down on a clean block, cycled through the torque sequence at 40, 55, & 65 #’s. New head bolts with sealer run up the first 5/8” and a dab of oil under the head. I gave em another hour and checked em again at 70 #’s.

Never ordered my pushrods, so that’s going to delay things a few days. Should have gotten more done today but had too much going on.

Few money shots, the intake is just set in place:





Setting end play


Inside the cover:


Setting free play on the dog bone axle


Locked down


At a stand still till I get some hardened pushrods +.10 @ 7.90
(should be here Friday)


Money shot:

Ya gotta love when the UPS guy comes early … he didn’t.

So I got into the existing boxes of parts and started installing what I could.
New oil filter adapter installed w/ locktite.
Test fit the new oil filter, flame on !
Gave the crank a wipe down. Cam’s dripping assy lube everywhere.
Then installed the new Melling HV 710 pump & pick up.

Took some pics of the D300 I clocked on the T-18 last week. Cut the shifter ear off and reground the mount. Cut the pin off and drilled it out for a new cotter pin.
I’ll be rebending the shifter once everything is set in place. Just don't see the need for twin shifters yet.

So UPS shows up !
Motor mount brackets, yeah!!!

Emailed Ballistic in Cali to find out where my bushings are. These *** holes said they aren’t in to them yet ???
I thought these guys fabbed their stuff , they have a huge high $ shop, and they farm out their work???
Had I known this chi, I would have made my own. A week has gone by and they couldn’t have let me know. I'm pissed off!

Any who, ... sixteen new hardened pushrods in, set timing to zero and start setting the valve lash. Done in no time. Easy with adjustable rockers, lock the set screws and fugetaboutit.

Good wipe down on the heads and intake w/ brake cleaner and bead up some high temp RTV. Set the FelPro's. Bolts dipped in anti seize & we have the intake torqued down. Some Super 300 on the timing cover gasket, same for the water pump gaskets, and those guys are torqued down as well.
I got a 14” K&N, we’ll see if we can fit it all under the hood in a few days.

And now some pics:

Wow that is tall, looks like we are going to have to put a scoop on the hood. I will bring the plasma cutter.

I told you, I don't think it's going to tuck in there. We're exchanging air filters.

Still waiting on Ballistic
Looks like the bushings should be here Friday so I can install next weekend.

Installed the harmonic after boiling it for 15 min:






Test fit on the pulleys, looks like I'll need about .0625 shim to line things up.

Hey Fatman, I've got that same cam setup with gears in my 84 pickup, it sounds really nice, and has awesome throttle response. Lemme ask you a question, how did you line up the pulleys to determine the shims? And why'd you boil the balancer?

hey airtime, after confirming the harmonic was bottomed out I mounted the pulleys up but only installed the dbl on the lower.
Then with my straight edge and calipers I was able to gauge the offset.
Shims are generally sold in 1/16 & 1/8" sizes (.0625 & .125)

The harmonic gets the water treatment to get it to full expansion without damaging it like oven head could. Once out of the pot, a slathering of motor oil on the crank snout as well as the seal & using the installer, she drew up tight without any problems.
