Dropped off two boxes of parts at the machine shop...

So I'm finally making a bit of progress on my 2018 dirt motor.

Dropped off 12 340 bushed rods and four good Ross pistons...hopefully, before Christmas, I'll have 8 pistons hanging on 8 reconditioned rods with a new set of bearings.

Trying not to spend more $$$ on this rebuild as I need to... it's proven engine that had been abused a bit. I'd really like to install some lighter valves since those old 3/8" steel ones kinda scare me. I'll keep the rev's down to ease my mind.

I have another build in mind after I get this engine and the chassis all done... the new one will kinda raise a few eyebrows since no one I know runs one of these 'new' engines on dirt.
