Well, a new block alone is over $5000. This one will get a solid roller with the Crower bushing lifters. They were over $1000 themselves. I would expect a new version of this engine to be in the $15,000-$20,000 range.

It's been a while since I updated this. Finally got it done, and on the dyno. Will make pulls tomorrow. Meanwhile here are some more pics of the progress of building it. Here is the block on a stand so I can check it for stroker clearance.



Needs to be ground on some.

Time to start building. Here is a rod and piston ready to go in.



Thrust bearing.



Crank and cam in.

Time to check out oil pump, and deburr it. I also make sure the mating surfaces are true and flat, and check clearances







Of course, like on so many of these pumps, the bolts don't bolt down flat against the oil pump.



So off to the mill it goes to get cut square.

All done on the mill.





Tuned up the cam thrust plate, as it wasn't very flat. Took a fair amount of sanding on the granite slab to get it flat.

Short block together.





Cometic head gaskets.



Heads on.



Well, seems Harland Sharp just can't cut the mustard at this lift, which is around .630". Back of the rocker arm hits the poly lock at full lift. OOPS!

Crower to the rescue! I had a set of Crower 1.60 rockers here for another engine so I used one to check to see if they would clear, and they cleared by a mile, so customer had a set of 1.65's drop shipped to us. I'm kind of glad the Aluminum rockers hit because I really don't like running aluminum rockers with solid roller cams.



Figured out pushrod length, and ordered some thickwall pushrods from Smith Brothers.







Because of the tight lash cam[it only calls for .014" lash], and the aluminum block and heads, I had to set the cold lash at 0. I'm figuring it will grow around .014". So I will lash it when it heats up on the dyno.

Time to button this thing up, and get done with it.

Oil pump came with a copper gasket. I installed studs to hold the pump in place.





Because it is an Indian Adventures block, which has register mounted main caps, as opposed to dowel pinned caps, The oil pan rail is lower than a factory block. This causes a mismatch at the timing cover.





So I installed a factory timing cover part of the oil pan gasket. This pretty much leveled it out for the one piece oil pan gasket to have any hope at all of sealing.

Edelbrock D-port heads, reportedly flow 317'ish.
10.5:1 compression.
Lunati Voodoo solid roller cam, 255/263, 285/293 Adv., .646 lift after lash.
.904 bushed Crower solid roller lifters, bronze lifter bore bushings.
Autotec pistons with 1.5x1.5x3 millimeter rings.
6.7" Eagle rods.
RPM intake, port matched.
.116" wall pushrods.
Stud girdle.
