clean the piss outta those pistons
also would be a good idea for all new bearings and rings to be safe
nothing like doing the work twice for what cost $100-$150

PICKED THE CRANK UP YESTERDAY. THEY MICROPOLISHED IT BUT DIDN'T CHARGE ME.BECAUSE THEY NOTICED IT WAS MESSED UP AFTER THEY WERE ALREADY FINISHED.





EVIDENCE OF CRANK WALK. THERE IS A LIP THAT WAS MADE WHERE THRUST WASHER GOES WHICH ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE THERE. EITHER THE RETARD PUT THE THRUST WASHER IN BACKWARD OR IT WAS THE 6 PUCK UN-SPRUNG CLUTCH. EITHER WAY NOW MY CRANK IS A 35 POUND PAPER WEIGHT.

if you can swing it, full race makes a decent manifold. i lil pricey, but solid none the less.

if ya need tuning holler. I'll bring out a buds car soon to check out.
