    A new set of pistons and a clean block (and a pile of money) and I'll be ready to go!!!

    I will say that so far I am impressed with this crank. It is a Hawks Racing (RPM brand) crank that I got from the Mustang Depot and I was blown away by the fact the rod bearings looked so good. Some folks on the BBF boards bad mouth the RPM brand, but I am very very happy thus far.

    I will say at least your busted stuff pictures are interesting. I didn't know you had Hypertenic pistons in there :o That thing definately took a beating. So most the rotating assembly is still good to go?

    More busted stuff!!!!

    Who says hyper pistons are weak? ;D This sucker took a beating.








    On a lighter note, the oil pump was clean and the rod bearings and journals look brand new except for the two on the journal with the failed pistown. Those bearings are just slightly worn on the outside edge. That journal looks perfect though.

    Keep hammerin' away.......if Amarillo weren't so far away from Indy, I'd offer to help you get this internal-combustion version of a rank bull/unbroken horse back in action.

    This little beast just looks like it would be a RIOT on the streets!

    How's the "new to you" block working out?

    Do you still plan to regrind your roller?

    Hey, quick question, you can use the pre 79 rotating junk in a post 79 block? The 460ford.com archives got wiped or something...
    Yes on the regrind.

    No on the rotating assembly. The crank counterweights will hit the bottom of the bores.

    Man, you have a lot of patients. If that was my truck...I think I'd be putting in a flat head Studebaker I6 in by now :
    We got a nice one at the shop with a finned aluminum head it could be you :D

    Yep that was the application that came up when I looked up the switch. I just went to Autozone and said I need a SW514 and they looked up the part number to verify that they had one and went back and got one.
