Nice input Schurkey and MadBill. Nice of you Harleyboy 14 to pay attention to the input these guys are sharing with you and to take your time to do it right! Wise men never stop learning or listening.
The help from you guys is greatly appreciated. It's been over 20 years since my last full engine build.

Thanks for putting up with me........

That was a picture of rings in the bore after I fitted them.
Thank You!

I thought my eyes were deceiving me!

Now, how are the clearances in those lifter bores and the roller lifters you are using? I want to do this to my bored out 396 on her next go round. And 'notch' the intake side of the cyl's.

I used Howards Retro-Fit Maximum Effort Hydraulic Rollers Lifters. There Tech guy Eric was great help to me. Give him a call.
