|April 17, 2007 - The engine is going to have to come apart again.|
I'm still trying to sort out why, but the pistons are standing proud of the block. Not good. Usually I'd do a quick check of this after installing the first piston, but this was the third engine built with pistons from this batch so I was pretty confident everything was good.
Well, it was supposed to have been built with known pistons. A check of the paperwork indicates that an experimental set of pistons intended for use with a stock crank may have ended up in the motor. I need to do some more checking on this.
Whatever the reason, it appears I'll be tearing it all apart again. At least I know the clearances are good now. Sigh.
