Couple engine "mock up" pics.....

Engine block is done and re assembly is on its way. Thought I would just mock up the block to see how it will look. Crank goes to the grinder in about 2 weeks to be offset ground and turned to 2" in order to use flat top chev 400 rods and pistons ( +.030 ) This is one expensive hobby..........but it sure feels good to get ever closer to having a road worthy head turner. Nickle and dime......nickle and dime.......

Looks nice.

What type of valve covers are you planning on using?
