Mike,

Heads are TFS Twisted Wedge, pistons are Speedpro hyper pistons .30 over, Lunati cam, stock crank and rods, Total Sean gapless rings, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold, and 650 cfm Mighty Demon carb.

I replaced the main and rod bearings along with a new oil pump and pickup. I think I might have a clearance issue. On the front rod journal that mounts the front two connecting rods there is I think a clearance issue between the two rod caps. I basically had to "tap" forcefully with a rubber mallet the second rod cap in just to get it into position so I could start threading the nuts onto the rod studs. My guess is that I should not have had to do that since none of the other rod journals were not like this. But this is the first 5.0L I have ever rebuilt so I dont know if this is normal or not. Is it?

Shane

PS, Mike the wheels are made by CCW. The water pump is made by Milodon and is for a V-belt setup.
