I had the blocks degreased at Northern Cylinder Heads

They get really clean but bare cast iron quickly gets a bit of flash rust
so I put a bit of light oil on the insides


A test fit of a new sleeve fits nicely

The cam bearings need to be installed with a a special tool

I put a rod through the oil hole so I could mark the side for alignment

Plastigage is used to make sure there is adequate oil clearance

With 4 shims on each side

With 3 shims on each side

With 2 shims on each side

With green plastigage
