I was asking about balance for future reference... I am going to have the setup rebalanced with a new crank... I was hoping to make it through the year with this one and keep it for a spare, but what are you going to do??

I bought this as a shortblock and had it freshened up with a turned crank and new bearings, It was already balanced.

Thanks for the kind words guys, I am hoping to get to the track again here sooner rather than later...

Sorry my bad ops: , i misread the post, thinking that it hadn't been balanced as an assembly before. Good luck on the new assembly.

Zip.

dragster josh. i live in orrville, oh. just 6 miles east of wooster,oh.. if you make the trip the crank is you'rs.. i run a hiperformance engine machine shop and don't have time travel. yes it's FREE FREE. thanks and good luck on next build... looks to me that you had either to close clearances, and or possibly oil pump failure. b/b need extra clearance AND A GOOD PUMP. doing a new 511 b/b for a customer that got 4 passes on his 468 that was built down south.

I cannot thank you enough!!! I was thinking my racing season was done. With 2 kids, a house and 1 income its hard to afford to go racing let alone rebuild the motor at mid season!!!

I will pickup the bearings at Jegs tomorrow and call you to set everything up...

THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!

Josh

Performance Sorry I have been out of town on work... I 100% want the crank and will have you balance it, but it could be a week or 2 before I can get up there...

Also, someone I talked to said I should have the block line bored since all the mains were junk. Do you know where I could get that done and a ball park of price?

Thanks again,
Josh
