    Gasket sets finally ordered... will be filing rings in a few days, installing pistons and rings on the rods, and then checking rod bearing clearances. I have a feeling I will be having the shop polish my crank to remove .0001" off the journals for additional clearance.

    Gaskets arrive! Not much more to do... just need my head work completed.

    (So this is what $200 worth of gaskets look like... )

    Piston to wall clearance checked out OK. Piston rings are gapped, howevr I have some questions about the secondary rings which I need to get ahold of Total Seal for. I'm thinking they sent me the wrong rings. My gap is already at 0.018" and I haven't filed them or anything. Total Seal specs 0.012 for my application. So I'm questioning it.

    In any case the pistons are mated to the rods...

    Yes it is. It's my wife's. My TI-89 is at work in my desk drawer. Those calculators are nice. Made life a lot easier when taking multivariable calculus and linear algebra.
