"Ricks Ride"
Old Number 16

The Motor

Today is motor day and since we have everything ready it shouldn't go to bad I hope, although nothing ever goes smooth...ha ha. We started by adding the Wiseco 3 5/8th pistons and rings to the waiting rods.

Then slid on the Comtec steel base gasket and put the cylinders on.

Next put on the Cometic Head Gaskets and put the heads on.

Once those were on we moved onto the lower Rockerboxes. Once again we used Cometic one piece lower gaskets and put on the freshly powdercoated lower rocker boxes, attaching them with a new Colony lower rocker box bolt kit.Next the new rocker arms and new shafts were put in. Also added the new pushrod covers and new Crane moly adjustable pushrods.

Now we just have to put on the new rocker gastkets and centers and tops. Now its looking up!! Slipped in the new Rivera Stainless Steel Competition Advance weight set and of course the Dyna Ignition system. Almost there...
