I see I have failed to properly communicate.

Nothing funny with what you said, you gave him good advice,

I can't beleive he is wanting to try to tackle the task at hand. He could very easily damage his block.

I agree , thats why I told him to let someone check it before he ruined it and cost him more than it needs to..

Might as well have him check the line hone on the mains. If it needs it, do it. It'll free up a bunch of power and make the motor live a lot longer.

Racing motor or not, if you build them right, they last a lot longer.
