    Well shit!

    Got her all buttoned up but have very little compression, after careful consultations with Jesse I did a leak down test. Massive blow by the rings, like 50% on the front, 90% on the rear. I should have known I smoked those suckers last year when I overheated it. The new cam has more overlap and really makes the lack of compression noticeable, well that and my guess is the rings bound up sitting all winter.

    She looks good, but tomorrow I start to tear her down to send the jugs off to Mr Dragstews for a little love and some new rings. Sigh...

    I was being really careful with the break-in process, but pushed a little too hard one day and got her hot enough to blow a bit of white smoke ( oil ) out the pipes. Compression remained good so I didn't think much more about it. It has sat all winter with oil soaked rags in the jugs and both of those wrapped in plastic to prevent any rust, but my guess, soon to be confirmed, is that I did damage them and the amount of carbon/gunk froze the rings over the winter.

    I image there is a chance they would break loose with some penetrating oil and running the motor, but at this point I know there is a problem and I know I am better off getting it done right by the Drags Meister! She sure is easy to kick over right now, lol

    Ha, I am dying to paint another gas tank now that I figured out the stencil cutter and got me a half way decent airbrush. I plan to practice a bit over the summer and then make that my next winter project.

    And like Jesse says, shit happens, the trick is to just roll with it.

    Speaking of Jesse, guess I need to source another set of head gaskets and a set of base gaskets and, at this point, a new set of intake O-rings. The fun just keeps on a come'n.

    What bore are they at now .. ??

    STD is 3.4375 (3-7/16") ... Can go as far as 0.070" over with a choice of compression of Low 7.5:1 or STD 8.5:1 ...
    (Thought I'd throw this out here now, just in case it comes to dat.)
