I finally got all my parts back except for the heads should be here today. I hope so I can do piston to valve check and degree the cam and fininsh putting the motor together. My dad wanted the green not sure if I like it I hope it grows on me. I will get more pics when it is completed. Sorry forgot to mention it is the same 393 Cleveland we have been running except for five new pistons a new block and new heads. I dropped a valve in my last race of the year. I should have packed it up early, I knew I needed a rebuild but I had to try to make it one more race cost me alot of money.

Kermit the cleveland green Laughing

Haven't seen an engine that color since the late 80's monocromatic craze.

Good to see you getting it back together.

Yeah I could put one on it but they are hard to find for clevelands. I ran it for two seasons without one and I am only making about 500hp n/a and 100hp nitrous shot. We only turn the motor to 6500 so the girdle would be added insurance but not really needed. When I build my next motor with the CNC'd heads and high compression I will be running a forged crank, girdle and a windsor block. That motor should take us 10.50's N/A and maybe 9's with the juice. Our best time with this motor was 10.66 @ 125 and a 150 shot.
