The block, she is bored!

First thing done was to take a skim cut off the face to match the block and oilpan surfaces perfectly. Then the two bores were drilled thru with a 7/16 drill bit.





Then the boring bar was used to bring the hole to size. The block is 4.936 long and the travel on my Z axis is only 5.020 so i bored in 4.800 and then raised the knee until the bar broke thru. Then I lowered the knee and raised the boring bar. It takes a bunch of time this way but it's all i have for now.




I wanted to see how well it worked so i poped it out of the clamps and forgot that I have another dozen or so holes to drill, DUH.

Made a little progress today. Finished the front of the block. Just some drilling and used a boring bar to clean out the gear pockets.

Not much to report. I managed to match cut the rear of the block and drill the holes
to mount the bell housing adapter before the heat chased me back into the house.
It should cool down this weekend so I was hoping to get the block done and move
on to something else.

Got a bit more done on the block. I went down both sides of the block with a 5/8 ball nose to give
the block it's final profile.




Then with the block upside down, finished the profile.






Then i knocked down the pointed edge in the valley to make it look a bit nicer.




I think for now the block is done. I still need to drill the hole for the distributor but i'm going to wait
and drill thru the manifold and block at the same time. It just hit me how small this thing is.

.....But the pointed edge in the valley was my FAVOURITE PART!! Ruined. Sad. Not really! Beautiful sculpting with the ball mill, lots more character to the block. Chris
