What GJA is starting with...
needed to build a high horsepower engine GJA can
do all in one shop.
the engine hot tanked and cleaned of the miles
of baked on grease and grime it was time to be
honed. GJA started off by boring and honing the
block with deck plates.
the main bearing and the cam bearings was one
of the critical steps in preparing our block.
GJA will be doing...
|With all the major machine
work done, we picked up our block ready to be
final cleaned and painted. Chad Johns had done
all the machining steps needed and all that
was left was to do the final detail work to
the block. Chad had also installed the ARP main
bearing studs for us, before align honing everything
to final specs.
We decided to do the final block preperation
ourselves which meant we would be the ones to
cut the sharp edges of the block to remove any
potential areas that might develope cracks later.
We also wanted to chase all the threads in the
block and counter sink all the bolt holes in
the block as well.
We had to break down and purchase some special
tools, rather than rely on the old school method
of measuring bearing clearances with "plastic
gauge", we opted to buy ourselves a new
bore mike set and other tools so we could make
sure our bearing clearances were right on the
