Yesterday Andy, John, Francis and I attended the Annual  GG get-to-gather hosted by Keith and Heather Black!!!!!!!!

Today Francis and I noodled on the canopy some more we are getting closer and closer to the final solution!!  After He left I went back to the mid plate project--mostly done and offset punched the LS block so that the missing bell housing bolt can be drilled and tapped

SD came by yesterday and dropped off my Eagle 6.460 HJ rods he ordered them for me from SDPC.

Talked to Francis last night and we have decided to build the canopy with no Mail Box and see what we can see.  If we have to make some changes we do not think we have lost any thing and would have to undo few if any mods.

The ARP bolts up grade part # for early 6.0 truck blocks is # 2344313 heads 625 material

Mains  #2345608  8740 material

 I am going with the up grade and not the 1/2 oversize because I was told to not torque the castings over 100#

Took the block to the machine shop to get it cleaned up, trued up, and squared up and align bored, and size bored..  Should have my Dry sump pan next week.

Finally did it broke down and ordered the jigs for the PISTON CROWN Oilers from Bo Laws Products   they make them for lots of engs  407-422-0394.

The jig # for LS motors is 400-050 

Their Crown Oilers different from the Factory squirters which only squirt one side of the wrist pin at BDC

BLP squirt the underside of the crown at TDC  across the bore away from the nozzle !!

More FORD PARTS:

The old one for use with the Shorty PG/GV

The new for use with the Turbo 400/GV

Saved a little over 5" in length

will use my existing Yokes that have cap straps to hold them in will make it easier to switch back and forth between the BBC and the LS engines

I agree! Looks bitchin' Sparky!
Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish. The product of a demented hill billy who has found a way to live out where the winds blow. To sleep late, have fun, drink whiskey, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love or getting arrested.    H.S. Thompson
