These are the products we used.  On the left is a roof coating that we used as a waterproofer under the two water tanks.  It is also paintable.  When we put ice in our intercooler box it get so cold the condensation settles at the bottom of the floor boards.  We also used the roof coating in the wheel wells over the oil based paint to help keep moisture or salt from getting to the metal.  The roof coating will get another coat of oil base on top of it to give it a better shine for cleaning.



This shows the bottom of where the two tanks sit.  We put silicone in all the places that water might settle.  Just need to put one more coat of oil on it and were done.



Here we cut some steel out to cover the oil galley so we can keep more oil in the lower end of the block.  Used Devcon to adhere to the block.



Putting the crank in and checking clearances.  The red strip is a piece of wax to check how much clearance is between the crank and the bearings. 



Hammering down the caps.  Had to double check one bearing clearance because we thought we might of hit the cap too hard and squished the wax before we torqued it.



Our gage for measuring clearances.





checking end play of the crank.



Crank is set and in for good.

Nice work  grin.

Something you might want to consider is instead of the silicone get "seam sealer" from a store that sells auto paint.  I think it will stick and last longer than the silicone.  Paint the surface, let it dry, apply the seam sealer, wipe the joint with your finger and then repaint the joint.  It is used extensively by auto painters and really does a great job and is inexpensive and will seal the seam forever.

Putting the Arias (cp) pistons in the block.



Still have the stickers on the car.



Saving some money putting our engine together ourselves.



The dykes upper ring.



Long rod engines require notched buttons for the oil ring.





Pistons are in.



This last piston was one reason our record in 03 was so soft.  The valve end broke and was getting tossed around on top of this piston all before the first timed mile.

Intercooler is welded up and ready to cool.



A little set back.  The rods hit the pan so we had to grind the pan to make clearances for the rods.

I like everything except those piston pin buttons...the alum to steel will tack together and turn ever so slightly back and forth with the pin and then hammer that oil ring. next time make them out of Teflon. other than that your doing a great job... hope it runs as good as your work.

What can I say, we've been using those buttons for years and so have many racers without any of those problems that you speak of.  And when this car does run it is usually well over the records at bonneville.

Getting ready for the new blower to come, so we had to take our old blower system out of the car.





Put one of the water tanks in the back of the car.  This is the engine water tank.  The larger intercooler tank sits on top of this one.


Put all of the studs in the block for the heads, they will be put on eventually.
