I spent the weekend prepping crankshafts for the grinder.  Moved the weights on two B crankshafts and drilled them for pressure oil to the rods.  Also drilled the late integral weighted 1933 Model B crankshaft from my '31 S/W.  I decided to change from dipper to pressure oil to the rods.  Photo below is from the start of the setup to remove the pins holding the swedged weights in place.  I have a dedicated fixture with "V" blocks to hold crankshafts when working on them.

I will be assembling a shortblock this weekend, running an engine on the dyno and prepping a block for machining.

12.21.18
I delivered 3 blocks to the machining center a few days ago and then today delivered 8 more.  Four of these engines are customer engines and the rest are for my stock.  I recieved 3 customer blocks about a week ago and am in the process of assembly.

A customer picked up a shortblock today.  He traded his tired short block for one I had on the shelf.

Last night I installed a 6:1 Snyders head on a counterweighted touring engine I am finishing for the Jammer Coupe shown above.  I will break it in on the dyno and then Catherine will assist installing it in the restored chassis this coming Sunday.
