I got the block back from the machinist a couple of days ago and are now ready to start assemble stuff.
I started off with some thorough cleaning with brake cleaner on the cylinder liners and wiped off any residue from the hone and bore. I then oiled the liners with 10w-50 getting it ready for gapping rings.
I then numbered all the parts/bags with cylinder# not to mix up the gapped rings etc.
I did a quick cylinder wall to piston clearance check just to be sure the machinist didn't screw up things. 0.030" was spot on.
The numbers before gapping is as follows:
The recommended end gap from Wiseco is:
These numbers are factors multiplied with the bore in inches.
I was a little bummed to see that one of the top rings had a default gap of .020 ~0.5 mm
I'll check if there are some differences in cylinder diameter and the possibility to swap rings as I would like to have it at 0.018". If not I'll just run .020".
A friend of mine is running .020 without problems and dynoed 400 whp so that is probably ok.
Next up is buying a new motor stand and finding a way to grind the rings without ruining the rings. If I had planned ahead I would have bought the $49 manual ring grinder from Summit but that is not an option as I have to wait at least 10 days for that to arrive.
