I used one of my spare OE cams. I'll probably keep the damaged one for a Mega Cycle core if I do one some day. No sense in using a perfectly good cam if I have a damaged one.

So the machine shop did what exactly I'm asking and guessing , correct me if i'm wrong

Bore Hole ,
4 valve , valve job ,
Weld and grind cam journal ,
Split crank weights to put rod and rod bearing on and pressed new crank bearings on

did I miss anything , or have to much on list.

so whats machine shop cost for what was done .

Machine Work

Grand total came to $592.68 including supplied valve guide seals. The owner supplied the piston and rod. I tried to buy the parts from the machine shop but it's hard to beat E-Bay prices. Money is money.

Wow, amazing write up/photo essay!!!!!

But what happened to the part where you press the crank apart, install the new connecting rod, then press it back together and dial indicate it back to zero?

That part is done by my machinist. I have asked to see some of his operations but he won't let me watch...

You do amazing work !!!

I'm one of the fortunate few who has worked with Steve and witnessed his work first hand. He is an absolute genius when it comes to these motors and he makes it seem so simple and straight forward: the mark of a true expert !

Count yourself lucky if you ever have the opportunity to 'speak' to him or experience his craft first hand.

BTW, Thanks for the write up Steve

Between cleaning the garage and work on the engine, picture taking I was in the garage about 6 hours.
