After the Bore and Hone, we Decked the block, it has a nice surface now. A few coats of paint, and we are ready for assembly. We reground the Crank and Cam already and they are ready to drop in.
I shot a few pictures of the new Dome Pistons that we are using in the rebuild.
It’s coming together nicely. Check out that nice sheen from the decking.
It’s time for the cylinder head and timing components to complete this engine rebuild.
