I think you mean 0.060, if you went .60 over I think you'd bore out of just
about every block out there ... .060 is about the last standard size of
piston you can get for most motors, but older blocks will bore out farther
than newer ones (generally speaking). What type of motor are we talking
about ? I've heard of mid 60's small blocks going out to .120 over, and
I've heard of them having walls too thin to use after .040 ... so you
really need to have the block checked before you can decide if .060 is good
for your block or not...

So it begins, I think I've found a good machine shop that knows Fords that's
fairly close and spent some time on the phone with the owner discussing the
possible alternatives for building the "Killer 400" He said in no uncertain
terms that bushing the rods for smaller wrist pin pistons (351C) wasn't a
good idea. He said he'd hate to see what happened 20K down the road.

Dave R., I know you've done it and been successful but I think I'm inclined
to go with what this guy is telling me which is stock type pistons, zero
deck the block then shave the heads down to get to the 9-9.x:1 c.r. I'm
taking the heads in this week to get tanked & blasted so I can start playing
with the die grinder...can you hear the Tim Allen grunting?...next comes the
block. The 20-10 400 crank is on the way and should be here at the end of
the week. He's talking about a 2 week turn around time so that ain't too
shabby.

One quick favor...if you could all just face northeast for a second in the
direction of Dearborn, aka the Holy Land, and say a couple of Hail Henry's
for my little project I'd appreciate it!

Thanks,

Bill

See I'm so excited about this project I can't even think straight!

Whatever direction Dearborn is from where you are...if you're geographically
challenged as I obviously am then just close your eyes and bow your head
when you do the Hail Henrys. Once again thank you,

Bill

You lucked out, I didn't even notice 'cause Dearborn is NE from here :)

Thanks a lot! The engine I'm referring to is a 351W in my '92 F250...what do
you think?

Thanks again!
