The pistons are being coated this week, having been drop-shipped directly from the piston manufacturer. This is the last step before the actual build begins. I contacted the machine shop that will: check the head, do a valve job, sleeve the block, prep the bores, prep the crank, and balance the rotating assembly. I have yet to make a final decision on who’s going to do the actual build, wishy-washy as I am.
In other news, I have a long vacation coming up and expect to make a lot of progress on Midlana. Look for many frequent updates soon!
