The curse of success. Who drives the most in progress car. The race mechanic. He is always working on customer stuff. LOL Repeat business is always Better than having a shop full of comebacks.

Not sure if it's all over the web or not but I was building a Hemi and this is what I found.

Same length, stem, lock, but 2in instead of the stock 1.910.

Ex not going to work but the intake is perfect.

Good find. I just keep coming back here and learning. Maybe one day I just might use all this info to build me a stroker for my TJ. This thread has been great.

Don't make fun of my spring compressor,
Gunner.

It's all I have right now. My small one tore up.
This one will do 1000lb and it did these springs just fine. Haha

HAHA I was just gonna say that is one serious spring compressor. I had a smaller one. Had the tips all welded for strength. It was as ugly as a cows backside but it worked sweet. How much retainer to seal do you have when you do a high lift cam? I like the seals you chose. Vitons? They let in just enough oil without starving it long term like the white Teflons do. And it looks like they fit the stock guide OD.

Do you have to test new spring pressure or should it be in spec out of the box? What is the most crucial specialty tools needed for a engine rebuild?

I don't use Teflon anymore. They were the latest and greatest years ago.

Valves need oil.
Just like oil restricters, I don't like them or use them. I never understood why you would want to cut oil off to the heads.
What's funny, and I got in a heated confertaion with a big engine builder, is

Why cut the oil down to the heads then run a oil line to the head to spray oil on the springs. He said cus the spring would get hot and the EXTRA oil helped cool it.

I said. No shit? Then I couldn't stand it anymore. What a dumb ass. Haha

Thank you. All those fancy tools with analog dials look $$$. I want to do a rebuild for fun and education but don't want to invest in a lot of tools only used once or twice.

You can have a lot of fun for not a lot of money. Start easy. Rebuild a lawn mower engine. Learn the basics. If you have the basics you can learn the rest as you go.

You got me thinking of my first rebuild. And it was a lawn mower. I must have been 12-13 years old. No telling how much money I made with it on weekends and summer time

I miss the high tech stuff more than anything else. In that respect retirement sucks. I loved to go into the shop and do little things to my motors late at night. My wife would come in at 3am and find me porting a manifold. LOL those days were fun.
