There are many landmarks in the engine setting up procedure, but when the heap of components comes to be something that actually looks like an engine you've hit a huge one. Davin and the Buick Straight 8 went across that threshold today, yet certainly, it really did not come without a hiccup or two.
Despite all the documentation as well as advice one can obtain, there will certainly constantly be a discovering curve that requires just doing the job to see if you obtained it right. Devouring the cylinder head was straight forward, however putting together the shaft rocker setting up was even more of a discovering experience. The rocker arms were marked for how they need to be constructed, as well as Davin thought he had it appropriate based upon the documents on hand, but it never goes that smooth.
