More engine photos of the 492 going into 838.

Everyone keeps plugging along.

At some point everything will come together.

It's actually a 496.... #cubicinchesmatter

Weighed and measured the pistons/pins today and filed the piston rings.

These are Diamond custom pistons with Trend wrist pins. Rings are Total Seal .043/.043/3mm with a Napier 2nd.





This will probably be about it for a little while. Heads should ship on the 29th and then I can get those assembled. Crankshaft is backordered until January.

Those are some big pistons. I can't wait for you to get this on the dyno.

John, that is some beautiful hardware from Brent.
Looking forward to seeing the engine build as it progresses further.

Cheers!

Man, those pistons are jewelry. Almost to pretty to seal up in an engine.

Brent is assembling the heads. Tremec TKX on order. Lots of engine parts and things coming in on a regular basis.

TFS heads that were sent out for porting.

ERA will send the body to paint in the next 4 months or less.

I would say it will be close as long as I mount snow tires.

I will post my impressions of the TKX when I can drive the car.

With the DNA of a TR6060 (T56 Magnum) in it, I have not doubt it will be great.

Engine assembly continues.

Brent posted some Utube videos featuring this engine and the heads. Search for Lykins Motorsports on Utube.
