Our process of installing our sleeves.  Of course we have to clean parts before installing.



Putting them in the freezer helps them shrink just enough so the going in easier, just make sure you get all of the condensation off first before putting silicone around it.







Installed



The block is ready to get bored and honed as soon as the piston and rings come in.

 It takes just as long or longer to cut away the excess silicon from the bottom of the sleeves as it does to apply and install the sleeves :roll:

  Troy did that and we worked on adding the 2'' on the spoiler for extra height. There is a slight radius in the piece we're
adding to so when there is a bend its not straight across. Theirs a 3/16'' gap in the middle when we lay the straight cut
piece where it belongs so we have to taper the ends. Never easy :roll:

We started a new 2" extension piece above our existing rear spoiler.  The first try was just off so today we got the aluminum cut and shaped to our liking.  Now we just need to mount dismount and paint the piece and re install.

I think if you click on the photo it goes away.  It does for me on my phone.

On my computer if you click on the photo it sends you to photobucket website but watermark is proudly still blocking part of the picture.  :x

 We also filled out and Emailed order forms for a Holley EFI Dominator unit, listed all the sensors, cable connections,

  injector sizes  oxy sensors, all the data stuff we want recorded ECT. Holley wants to make sure before final order.

  Find out more next week.

Test post of a picture from my Photobucket album to see if there's a watermark:



Well I'll be go to hell.  Why watermark on Langlo pics and not mine?

OK... Not really.... The proudly hosted watermark is now on photos for FREE accounts.... so Slim pays $50 a year minimum to be able to post pics without a watermark... So it is advertising covering the bandwidth charge....
Carry on... the watermark is not that bad now that we all know why it is there...
yes Martha, I googled it  :cheers:

So that's it.  Tanks, Stainless.  I've been paying P-bucket for years because I post so many pics that I wanted the storage space - and didn't realise that the new business model includes the watermark for free.  At least you can store and post pics cheap and easy.

Carry on, and Merry Christmas.
