New J&E pistons arrived and heads rebuilt. The valve springs are set up properly and will have no more coil bind. The new pistons have the correct valve reliefs to work with the cam lift. They also have a higher dome for increased compression. Stock head bolts are being replaced with an ARP set. The rods are being replaced with Carrillo’s that are up to the task. George has the case cleaned and ready for assembly.
More updates coming as the engine comes together.
