Re: Evolution of installing cylinder heads

You need to back em off first one at a time and then retorque em. Not just try to retorque em.

Re: valve clearance for offenhauser heads

Lay the heads on top turn the motor over without any head gaskets. If it goes without hitting anything youll be ok when the gaskets are there. Hopefully your using an aftermarket gasket.

Re: What cleanout plugs for Merc crank?

This is how its done. But steel plugs are fine they have no affect on changing the balance.

Using those style ring will eat up a lot of horsepower maybe as much as 20 or so.

Re: Four ring pistons

If you have all cast iron rings I wouldnt be concerned. More power comes from
a 3 ring setup with molly rings.

Re: Engine builders - a little advice please

Those baerings look good, I would check or change the pump while its apart though. That clearance is not enough to give you no pressure? You may have a relief valve sticking?
