Default Black Magnum 2.0 assembly

Looks like I'll be assembling my motor myself. I'm gonna need any and all advice, tips and procedures about putting together my motor.

First I'll be putting crank in. I can only do outside studs being that I got a girdle. The inner 2 will be in after Pistons are in.

I measure the crankshaft bearing diameters and they are at the limit. My Haynes book says 3.1228 to 3.1236.

The largest I got is 3.1229. Smallest at 3.1224.

Not sure if I need .0010 oversized

It's in tolerance.
If you don't like it, now is the time to fix it.
Did it carry good oil pressure when warm?

if you're talking about putting the main studs in out of order, plan on cracking a main cap... the proper way to install a girdle is install the crank as if you didn't have a girdle, then take the center stud nuts off, lay the girdle on, then go through torque sequence for center studs on girdle. do not torque the outside studs down alone...

Thanks for the info man. With the center studs longer, I wonder if I'll have enough threads to torque them.

Who did the machine work? Were the main saddles bored/honed with the girdle fastened in place?

I'm pretty sure that the girdle needs to be in place when you bore/hone. For it to be done right. I'm quite positive I've read that on the forums multiple times.

Trying to find someone nearby to do it would be my hang up. This is done WITHOUT bearings in?
