    achalmersman stroker 4.1 build (291 block)

    ahhh.. Got all my shit back on Friday. Cleaned up the parts, made a phone call and planned a trip. All my stuff (heads and all) are now in the hands of somebody I have 100% confidence in. Hopefully this super long-term project starts rolling again.

    Help with a/r choice

    Man 6266 is really too much for a stock long block. Thats my experienced opinion since that's what I have. Unless you're gonna push it really hard but I still think I'd have been better off with a 6262 or smaller. I pushed the unopened long block to a 10.99 on 93 and meth but I was pegging a...

    Yea I know you like em' tight.... I'd have to go back through my messages but the others were closer to 0.018"-0.020 which is kind of what I was hoping for.

    Yea you're on the right track. He had already done the final hone, decked, installed cam bearings fit the billet caps and line honed. Then I had it for several months (maybe a year). When I got the crank (gn1 4340) one of the mains were tighter than I wanted. It was 2 years ago but I wanna...

    Ahhhh found a browser that makes it bearable. Now I only get an add header now and then which I don't mind. I get the need for adds but in chrome this was unbearable. Not only was there as much adds covering the page as content it made a noticeable negative effect on page load times and...

    Yea I guess I should say I would never drop something off for custom fabricstion work without asking. But this is normal machine work within the scope of everything else he does on a daily basis. He's done work for me before so I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm not worried about him being...

    Pictures won't load

    I've never run anything as important as a website but I store over 50TB of data at my own home. My important stuff is backed up daily to an online service, and then I have 2 more physical backups one of which is located off site and synchronized on a regular schedule. I just dont understand...

    First time I've popped my head in here in close to 2 years and it's almost unrecognizable. My Tapatalk app doesn't work, and the mobile web page is unbearable. Unlike any other forum im a member of. 75% of the posted pictures are unavailable and adds cover 60% of the site. Insane. I won't be...

    I know what you mean. That being said I'm never one to bust balls on price. I dont even ask. Im the guy that when I get a recomendation and decide to use you I drop my shit off, don't ask the price, and ask if you need a deposit. That doesn't mean I have a bunch of money, I just appreciate...

    Its nobody on this forum. I'd rather not put his name out as I'm not trying to start anything. He's a nice guy I just think he's overworked etc.

    Wow I poked my head in here for the first time in a long time and didn't expect to see my thread at the top of the 2nd page. Im sorry to report you will be depressed as I have become. I sent my block and parts to the machinist I used for the line bore / cylinder hone almost 2 years ago to go...

    TA heads vs. GN1 heads

    Lol yea that was before I bought mine. So now I have a set of SEs that look just as good. Hopefully someday they will actually sit on top of a fully assembled short block lol. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Any Conceal Carry Guys here and your favorite carry

    No but I have used several Crossbreed and they've served me well. Also just got this one but I don't think it'll work for concealed carry [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Why is it going back? Trigger spring? My dads is showing the signs of trigger spring failure to come. Need to schedule it to go back. Nice pistol though Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    The nice part is if you aren't trying to conceal it will accept 19 round mags with sleeve so that you now have a full size grip. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    My favorite carry is my XDm 3.8 compact 9mm. It is my primary carry. Although I usually compete with a full-size Sig P320 X5 I occasionally use this in the compact division. Probably have about 6k trouble free rounds through this pistol. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    .001 oversized mains? MS-960p ?

    I believe they have them listed incorrectly since they have the .010 listed as + also. I believe they are actually 0.001 under Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    .001 oversized mains? MS-960p ?

    They are out there. Sometimes referred to as extra oil clearance bearings. Clevite part number ends in X. Maybe not for buicks though Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
