    Rods now fitted to pistons, What sick bast*rd invented Spiro locks. Had a good fight with them....blood all over the pistons as the ends dug in my fingers!

    Found the most boring job in the world....filing piston ring gaps.

    Top ring and 2nd ring gap set at 0.028" oil scraper gap 0.017". These seem quite big gaps but its whats on the chart for a motor running a 150-300 shot of nitrous.

    I will de-bur the rings before final installation.
    Just need to order a new set of bearings for a BBC rod (2.2") not a Ford!!!!
