We finally did my motor last week, motor was on a stand and was a project in itself. No way I'd ever want to do that in frame, what a pain that would be.
250k miles on motor. Most needed .050" or .060", and I think 4 of the intake valves needed .070"+.
Also, my shims from Jegs were supposed to be .015" but came as .020", so make sure to double check yours.

Hahaha!! Yeah its a tad bit harder in frame but its pretty much a wash. You spend more time and have more work pulling the engine, but you also spend more time and its harder doing it in frame. I've done all of the ones I've done in frame.

If I was going to do springs, studs and push rods in another motor, it would be on a stand.

We can have either the motor out or body up in 2 to 3 hours. Not worth doing all that work on your stomach for that...

I was installing some 910 and shims and thought I would take a picture of the gauge so people know how to use it. This one measured at 1.848

In Webshots there is a image code location on the right hand side where it gives you the direct link code, forum code, etc... for the particular image - across the top of that box there is about 4 different image sizes - Webshots defaults to the smallest one - just click on the one on the far right (largest one) and you get image code for a larger picture.

Hope that helps.

Jason
