I'm not sure if the valves should be rotating or not. No clue on that. It's all interesting. I know the new build will have a far more critical eye looking at each and every aspect of the pieces and how they go together. Now, I just need to stay out of the builders way. He said he will be posting progress pictures to his facebook, and sending some to me. I'm still very interested that he wants to go forged and diamond coated crank. Tim thinks it's maybe because he's trying to protect me against more damage in the event of another thrust failure. The internet says a forged crank is useless in a stock block, but then again the internet also says a stock block will crack. The builder says the stock block cracks due to improper balance, vibration, bad tuning, etc. He could tell from the burn pattern in the chamber that my tune was spot on with no detonation, but that with the new motor the tune will need to change drastically. Next on my list is to email Don Lasota and ask him about adjusting trans line pressures in the tune. It looks like there is a torque table that has everything to do with line pressure. I'd rather start will a little less pressure than a little more. lol. Also, I'm sure the HV oil pump will help with the thrust issue also. Did I mention how excited I am about the block being made to work with the longer pump? lol.
