So, I have a bit of a non update, update. I decided to drop by my machinist’s shop just to see what’s up. We chatted a bit and I asked him if my pistons have come in. He had a blank look on his face for a second while he thought about it, then said “Yes!”

We chatted a bit more. Then took a look at these sweet pistons. They looked beautiful. Except they were wrong. ARRRGH! They were supposed to be dished to -18cc. These were at -7cc. For some reason he thought that these were, in fact, correct. He cited the compression height of the piston vs what he calculated. These will sit in the hole a little deeper, effectively reducing compression ratio to a usable level.

He’s going to re-measure the block and verify everything. If it ends up being that the pistons are not correct, he says he has access to a cnc machine to create the necessary dish.

And the wait continues!

Hopefully he can cut ’em down the way they need to be. It’s usually easier to make piston dishes bigger than smaller! Thanks for the update!
