It’s back for Part 3, after getting the crank installed in preparation for hanging rods and pistons on it in Part 2. In this one, the rods and pistons get prepped, including mounting the pistons to the rods and also file fitting the pistons rings. Scott will take us through the whole process and is getting that much closer to this engine making noise!
Rebeldryver Scott is back with Project Mud Bomber, whose 428 has been getting machined and prepped for a full rebuild. Because parts were scarce and the machine shop a bit slow, this one has taken a little while but now it is ready to go together. Scott has gotten it all done and ready for assembly and this is the next video in the build series, so watch, learn, and stay tuned for more.

Big thanks to the guys/gals at United Engine & Machine, UEM, for their help picking out the perfect pistons for my Ford 428 big block project. In this video, we are installing these pistons on the connecting rods, and file fitting the piston rings.
