Finally happy again!!!!

Well the block is back at the house. Recleaned it before assembly pulled all galley plugs and sprayed all the holes out and blew everything dry. Didn't get pictures of the pistons later out sorry guys but here the crank in the block all torqued down. Spins nicely

All the pistons are in and rods torqued down got excited and didn't take a pic of the pistons before assembly. Installed all new clevite mains and rod bearings along with a total seal ring set that eddy set gaps on for me. Look at this bolt you can see it was rubing something.

I always knew my motor sounded like it was taping something and didn't sound quiet right bit ran fine. Well I found it
Lol. Not a big deal going to Dremel the metal away right here for clearance so it doesn't hit anymore.

Just a quick piston to valve check here. Good news is there's no way possible for my valves to hit my pistons unless I seriously float a valve that's almost impossible. The way my cam is set up the valve chases the
Pistons stroke. Even with the piston at its hugest point and the valve just starting to move there's a ton of room 1/4 or more. My pistons have those tiny marks but they must not be from the valves at all.

Cam is timed dot on single link 12 o'clock crank key at 2 dot at 6 between double link just like factory. Valves will never touch pistons. Boy I'm glad about that so stock head gaskets it is lol

Yikes! Will be nice to have that windage tray cleaned up...the rod bolts could have split that open like a sardine can and rotating assemblies don't like being wrapped up in shrapnel blankets..... Nice catch

Funny part is that's 30k of driving or more lol. That's getting fixed for sure though. Here is my cam spec card for anyone that's wondering.

I just can't believe windage tray clearance could be an issue... I haven't heard of anyone else with a 392 having that issue something to watch for with future upgrades thanks for sharing

Yes with a 4.05" stroke you have to clearance the factory windage tray. When using upgraded LQ19 rod bolts you also have to clearance the block. They now offer an after market windage tray for the strokers. Can't believe this wasn't caught in the beginning.
