Well, here it is.
This is officially the WORLD’S FIRST Cast reproduction 964 short block, and let me tell you, everything fits beautifully and the crank turns like butter.
Harman the machinist and I celebrated a little today.
It took 3 years to get to this point, and we are very very proud of the case. It has exceeded my expectations.
We had some hiccups in final assembly, and adjusted a few things, but overall, I think it is safe to say WE. ARE. DONE.
Monday, we will begin the rest of the long block. Everything is taking longer to assemble than a normal short block because we checked everything a million times.
