We sent the crank out to be machined down .001, and the machine shop had a “whoopsie” and the crank slipped in the fixture and damaged the crank, cutting it over .100”. Crank = done. After some searching, our good friend Eric Vanberkum came through with a fresh crankshaft. Once balanced, we re-assembled the engine with the pistons facing the proper direction, new gaskets, and a new bearing set. The block and heads were prepped and painted with Eastwood ceramic engine paint in proper Ford blue.
