Looks awesome, John. did those semaphore pockets turn out ok. I thought they looked all hacked up to me (before KCW go at it). I was a litte worried about those since they were all bronzed shut. Im sure its no big deal to you guys.

BD is looking good in the background.

Have you considered using a 74 crank? I think they are the same price and would make those engines torque monsters!

Harder to build though. Cylinder shims, deck measuring, H beam rods, wider engine, more labor to fit tin, type iv oil cooler, fan velocity ring, ect.

The cost between new 1914cc and 2332cc long block isn't much. Less than $1k.

Bens' mango/jamacian maple bus had Gene Berg's favorite 90.5 x 74 square engine. It ran great. Stayed cool. More power than a 1914cc

Kinda funny... talking about motors... "why not just....." Shit... if you ask me.. there is no reason to build anything but 1914's and 2332's.... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Come on man. B pistons and you're all good. Not even any wider! No need for all that other stuff except for the rods but you'd be replacing those anyway. Make it a 1904 or a 2054 and it'll rock.
