I spent a few hours today working on the lower case half, I still have some more work to do but here is how it looks so far.

I am really interested to see how this build pans out....I haven't seen a 'motor only' build before!

I budget one complete day for cleaning crankcases. Sometimes you get lucky, but it takes time toi get them clean and then clean out all the threads and countersunk them all, helicoil any that need it, check all the faces to get them dead flat and then clean them again to remove oil from fingers.

It takes time to get motors right, and that investment pays off.

Mr. Swagger, thanks for your comments, much appreciated.
Joey, this is looking better every day!!! I am very grateful for your dedication!
Mr. Teazer, you are right on sir! The only way to do an engine is to do it the right way, taking whatever time is needed  and paying attention to every detail like Joey is doing and I am sure you also do. As you can see, the new components are the best available and affordable to me, and the only way to make them all "hum" in harmony, is to have top notch craftsmen like Joey and yourself bringing them all together with American pride!!!
Thanks you all of you gentlemen for all of your comments!!!!! ;) ;D

I agree that prepation is key and never base what needs to be done on how long it will take and love to give each part the necessary time that it deserves. It is easy for me to spend anywhere from a couple of days to over a week just on the cases depending on what I am doing with them. I have spent close to forty hours working on a single part to prepare it for show quality polishing! Building quality equipment does takes a lot of time, patience, and dedication but in the end the rewarding feeling of seeing what you have created with your own hands is always worth it for me.

I also clean the cases by hand without chemicals so it takes me a little extra time but I enjoy it. Here are a couple photos of the two case halves sitting on my engine building stand.





The satin black engine coating came in today and I still have a couple hours of sanding, smoothing, and cleaning left to do before they are ready to coat but here is a photo that shows how the front of the cases look so far.



Thank you all for taking the time to read and support this thread!

Brother Habanero52 it truly is an honor to work with you, thank you again for putting your trust in me!

This is going to look nice. I have a very similar scheme on mine. The silver bit are actually brushed with a clear on them.
