Eyebrow cylinder

9724VF350,

Thanks

Snedge,

They waited for the pistons till they cleaned up the cylinders. I'll try to find out the clearances. There seems to be a lack of formal paperwork.

biggy238,

How did your clearances go?

jasonc,

I had some valves hit the pistons. I spun a couple of bearings, too. I'll be doing a leak & compression testing on the motor for a baseline ASAP.
It seems the machine shop was worried about flexing so much they kept the cylinders as close to stock as possible. It seems the 2 major diesel pullers that have their motors done by them, also demand the same. They tend to run 150 plus boost. So my 85 pounds should hold up. They also considered a 13mm pump putting out 970 cc's feeding 5x18's with .028 lift.
The Hamilton cam helps too.

Thanks to everybody
