Yes I’m interested in seeing that, if you got some pics thanks.Exactly!
The some headgaskets embed into the aluminum around the bore chamber. The cylinder head will need to be decked to clean up if you notice a shallow ring groove. The parts store felpro perma torque mls do not embed and will accept this groove. Ill try snap a few pics to show what im talking about.
Skip the shortys.I’m rebuilding my 2V. Starting off with a PI top end and iron non PI stock bottom. I want to do rings and and bearings for the rotating assembly. De-burr all the edges on the block.
Getting new oil pump. I want to get a moroso windage tray.
On the PI heads I’m installing new seals, heavier springs and want get some Todd warren cams. New adjustable cam gears. Heads are getting the 5 angle job. I want to port the heads my self. New tensioners and guides.
Installing new BBK tune length shorty headers.
Going to reseal everything of course.
Any recommendations on things I should do while I have the block apart?

Replace the heads. My journals were the same way. Found a good set of reman heads at my pull a part. But my cams wouldn’t spin in them so that’s why I swapped heads.I cleaned up my block at the car wash and sprayed some water displacer afterwards. Mounted it back on the engine stand. I honed the cylinders and I couldn’t see any major pits scratches or low spots. Very minor stuff.
When I took apart the heads I noticed the cam journals are scared. Apparently not terrible bad but not minor either. When I run my nail over several of the journals my nail does get hung up. So now I’m trying to decide if I buy new heads or just take some sand paper to the journals and send it. I personally don’t like doing things half ass, I rather have confidence in what I do but I don’t have enough experience to tell if I am over reacting on this.
What do you all recommend?
