:lol:

I do like to keep the suspense, but don't worry, I'm not protective about anything, I'm more than happy to share what I've learned. I don't see the point in keeping secrets over this kind of stuff. :?:

And yes, the torque wrench thing came after many "spethal" moments by yours truly in the workshop. :lol:

Using an AU1 motor as a base.
Spool rods
mahle pistons 20thou over with valve releifs machined locally to suit the 2 valve head
ACL race bearing 10thou under size on bigends and mains
Atomic mains girdle
Atomic main and head stud kits
Surecam custom grind cam, (Have attached the spec sheet)
The had has been hand ported by me and runs stock sized exhaust valves and over sized intake valves.
Manley custom valves
Compcams valve springs
compcams single groove locks
Atomic retainers
ACL gasket set
genuine ford AU head gasket.
Rollmaster cam gear.
Block has been decked to give 38thou piston to head clearence with the AU gasket.
Some oil system mods
Stock oil pump has been retained after a strip down and some minor mods.
Rotating assembly has been balance by JB Automotive
Used Clevite assembly lube
used loctite number 2 gasket sealer on the paper gaskets and will use 3 Bond grey sealer on sump ect.
painted the block black before fitting brass core plugs and painted the timing cover/sump in alum look paint as they didn't clean as well as i'd liked.

If you go back through the thread (go to page 19 and work you back through to here)
You'll see a bunch photos and info from along the way.
ETA is soon, ETA was originally December last year, A number of things and caused delays.
I don't think Nick hates me for taking so long, but I suspect he's called me some names a few times.

Nick- I will be picking up the springs and locks tomorrow, then I will take the head to NQ and we'll sort out the valve issue.

I don't think i've missed anything

Like I said earlier, nothing is confirmed yet. What I can say is I'm looking very seriously at my options and taking a full array of factors into account with whatever decision I make. Whatever the final outcome is I know I'll be happy with the end result, and that's what matters most to me.
