Ohh the motor.

I've used FM parts in TONS of cars of mine. They make Wagner brake pads, Champion Spark+Glow plugs, etc. I've used their SpeedPro forged pistons too. Obviously I like the shit if I use it this much. :D

Machine shop will do cam bearings when the block is prepped.

So when I take the block there to be machined I take them my bearings and they will set them in... my freeze plugs too?


can you tell me what tools I will need. ( not wrenches, etc. i got all that ) but like for the valve train or anything that i just might not know of yet.

Yeah, the block should be fully prepped from the shop. Remove everything.



Thread chasers
Feeler gauges
Plastigauge
Allen wrenches
SAE and Metric shit
Micrometer
Dial indicator

All I can think of, aside from reg shit needed.

Yeah I'll try to get links or someone else will hopefully post up.



Oh also, if you get file to fit rings (which I would), you'll need that tool... name slips my mind now.
