Cam bearings are a bl@@dy nightmare to do, as its difficult to keep the alighnment correct as you tap them in................ a very time consuming fiddly job, but well worthwhile.

The block looks good ...................was that hand or machined honed ?

I cant say I agree with the thread title .................... it should be 'half an engine rebuild - deep fat frying commences soon' :ph34r::lol:

Looks great Les.

All these V8 chaps clearly believe in quantity over quality. The word 'efficiency' is obviously lost on them, which is why they need sooo many more cylinders and all that electrickery stuff. :P

Proper job. Proper engine.

Deliveries to the rear. :o
