What I am referring to is the bolt hole visible in the picture above on the girdle between each pair of studs. There is a bolt & lock nut in each one to provide extra support to the center of each cast main cap under stress. The engine builder had nipped each of these bolts up tight against the cap & that is what caused the bearings to touch the crank top & bottom.

Cheers,
Jason

That help?? :lol:

Nothing was properly finished and the engine was not properly tuned so only running low boost i.e. 20psi. I could only nail 1st and 2nd gears over the 1/8th mile airstrip and had to coast the last 50 yards because it would go lean into top gear. I did however equal my previous best time on that unprepared airstrip. This compound turbo setup is an ANIMAL! :shock: Oh and if I never mentioned before I LOVE antilag launches!

If any video footage turns up I will link it in.

Cheers,
Jason
