no need to have any machine work done on the block, it's all good. there is still decent cross-hatching on the cylinder walls, and the mains are all in good shape too.
03-10-2009 07:06 PM
turbojohnny i did a fairly decent job cleaning the block already, but it's not as good as it could be.

Moreboost did you already have the block machined? or were you not doing anything with it? hopefully after class 2morrow ill be able to drop the block off, said he would have it cleaned and honed within a day, too bad i still havent ordered the parts, i need to call eeuro see if they do anything for me if not pfs will be getting my order mid day 2morrow

turbojohnny i think i might take the block in to work with me either thursday or friday and give it a good wash with a pressure washer, then all i have to do is decide on a color. i might drop off the rotating assembly and head this week at the speed shop to get things started with those too. we'll see.
