I just got my rebuild kit and a bunch of other goodies from clay. Exciting. I went straight to the machinist so he can size up the holes and get started. Unfortunately they forgot to send the valve springs though. Not that it's a big issue though because the are pretty close to the same price here as clay offers them for so I told the machinist to just get them in. He's very busy right now and I don't really want anymore delays. I'll just see if clay can swap it for a gauge or something. I'm sure he'll make it right. Eta on getting the block done is 2 weeks. I'll get the heads in a couple of days so I can do the injector cups and send the tool back to clay
