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.

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.

This past week I delivered a Model B Longblock, test ran an "A" longblock for a '29 Pickup and worked on an "A" shortblock.  This week, the engine will be installed in the pickup and the shortblock should be completed.
