Line boring the main bearing caps has been at the limits of my equipment on hand. I first ball milled the three center bearing webs and caps with a one inch ball mill to a depth of .460. Then installed the caps and cobbled up a way to attach the block to a face plate on center. My plan is to line bore the three center webs with a boring bar that can reach the first two without any problems but the third one is out of reach. I planned on unbolting the block from the face plate and flipping it around to get the third one. But it took so much time and effort to get it all running true and centered that I would prefer not to do that again. So the setup will stay like it is in the picture until I either make a longer boring bar or come up with something else.

One method I saw on U-Tube was to bolt the block to the cross slide. You need to make up a boring bar with bushes on the ends, which fit the block. The boring bar is then driven, via two universal joints, by the chuck. It's not that difficult, because the holes in the block doesn't need to be at centre height. The saddle is then moved along to bore the holes.

That's a neat Valve Grinding set up. Is that part of Steve's plans? or found elsewhere? Can anyone send me a link to it? ( Steve is a friend and a member of the MDMC group... great guy)

HI Joseph,
You must be referring to the cam grinding setup. I built that so many years ago from an article in Strickly IC magazine. I will try and find it but it might take some time to do so. Try a search for back issues of that magazine and there articles on cam grinding and see what comes up for you.
