The wiring wizard, Bob Toy, will be here today to see about installing my Racepak. Some times it's best to have a pro do the work.

A little delay had to rethink my bearing clearance. The crank is in, rear seal installed, roller cam bearings lubricated. I building this one on a bench without using an engine stand. Iím going to use a ladder to see where to degree the cam in, all of my benches are tall.

Building it the Glidden way, Mad Dog is definitely the Pro Stock GOAT, all others are mere imitations. Definitely looking forward to seeing Dumbo at Indy!

I thought it might not stress the block as much and maybe everything will spin a little easier.

Cam is where itís supposed to be. I should be able to fill some more holes and stretch some bolts tomorrow.

Building this on a bench has been a little different. The more I work on it the harder it is to wrestle into the next position.

Has anyone looked up ring gap placement for the five different parts of the ring package. Several ideas to look at.

Larry,

Page 2 of the Total Seal installation sheet has their recommendation for gap placement:

There are other sites that have a very different placement. I thought it was interesting.

And then there is the issue of the rings turning on pistons after running.

So thatís how the ring gaps sometimes get lined up over each other. Itís such a physics problem.
