Sleddog - Have a good run in what, for me, has never been a real
pleasant experience. I'm sure glad you're staying on the performance
list; you're our resident big block pro. I'm starting a new project this
summer and will need your specs on bottom end bearing clearances and
valve train geometry.

Thanks for the words,

but you don't want to use the clearances i am using. Actually, i don't
want to be using them either! Once the oil gets warm, I am running only
about 20 psi pressure at idle. Still don't know what i am running at top
end on the track though - i never had time to look. I will be hopefully
mounting a camera in the cab, to find out, sometime mid season.

My clearances are big - i can't remember the numbers off hand, but at the
max, both radial and side clearance. Side is actually run for a manual
tranny drag car - too loose for an auto trans puller.

I recommend for clearances, calling some real pros. And then using their
varied info to come up with what you best feel will work for you. I went
big, thinking i could keep oil pressure, but my gamble didn't pay off. I
might be shimming the oil pump spring sometime this year for more pressure,
but that too can be a gamble.

Keep us updated on your project.
