    As shown if you extend the face of the one cylinder bank out (perhaps with a flat plate or something) it's giving you the measurement to the corner of the other bank. This will be important when you fit the intake manifold on the top of the block. If it's not correct the monifold won't fit properly.
    I guess if you do everything else correct this measurement will be automatic. But it can / should be used as a double check and probably should be laid out on the end of the block as a guide to be sure you hit it right on doing the other machining.
    Not sure about his orientation suggestion. Whatever way you choose to get everything at the correct angles is the right way.

    There may have been some concern with backlash.

    Can anybody tell me the size of the O rings at the bottom of the cylinders.
    In fact is there a list of all the O ring sizes used any where.
    Thank you
    Ian

    Hi Ian, The "O" rings for the bottom of the cylinder bores are 1/16th section by 1" ID.
    I have the complete "O" chart as supplied in the Howell kit if you require
    any more info.
    Bill.

    Hi Bill.
    Thanks for your reply.
    Is it possible for you to send me the list ? Also is there a list of bearings used?
    I'm not sure how you sent a personal message to a member on this forum.
    Ian
