Just on here for constructive criticism
Just pulled down my '51 to discover main bearings shot, anyways dropped gear down local machine shop. Bloke quoted me round $1000- $1200 to basically provide me with a replacement crank offset grind, hemi rods and pistons to match and to balance the entire rotating assembly. I have done a search on the internet to try and find out more info on this combo to no avail. The car is an '82 XE falcon 'S' with C4 auto and 3.50:1 minispooled rear end.
I'm trying to ascertain as to whether people feel this is a good combo and worth it or whether I should stick to my original plan and keep stock grind.
Also with this i'd be running stock o/c 2v heads with double valve springs and 4v valves, no port work as later contemplaiting changing to c/c 2v jobs when money is avail. Any suggestions on a cam spec.. have been looking at a lunati hydralic .562/.588. 2300-6300.
Any helpful suggestions greatfully accepted, thanks in advance
