So I just got my Cometic master gasket kit from RSD yesterday, forgetting about that I'm not at stock bore anymore (99.75)
But when ordering/checking out, there weren't any options for 99.5mm, 99.75, or 100 for the head gaskets.

Rather than ripping open the package to see if the bore of the HG is smaller than the cylinder, I'll just ask if there are different sized HG's for different bores?


Also T bore gauged the mains the other night.... was getting between .002 - .004, grrrrr .
Time to order some std sized ACL race

Interesting; just called RSD about the HG/bore question after only finding 100mm and up HG's on their site, he assured me Cosworth uses 101mm HG's for all their builds from 99.5 - 101mm, and told me to call my machine shop.

So I called my buddies @ Rallispec again, where they said Subaru HG's are already over-sized, and that I'll be fine with the 101mm Cometic HG, good

Yup since the HX main's were wayyyy too big, ordered and received some STD size ACL race's, I've T-bore gauged them once with much better results, between .017-.025, so I gotta play with the STD and HX's to get .015".

I've also had a buncha other projects too, like my jetski broke and the ECU needs to be rebuilt for $600, some old lady wants to give me a '97 celica convertible that runs for FREE, I'm gonna turn down my front rotors on one of our grinding machines after work today, etc etc.....

If you got .017 with the standard bearings in the case you aren't going to get to .
015 by mixing in extra clearance bearings.

If you want them all that tight you are going to have to cut the case and line hone it.

Default Re: My first engine build.

I know, I've been slacking, sry guis

Good main bearing clearances;
#1 = .0014". #3 = .0018". #4 = .0018". #5 = .0015"

#2 is pretty loose tho, .0022". I think I gotta order some .025 oversized ACL's, just for #2 bearing


This is pretty much the last thing keeping me from assembling teh short block for good.
