Has the machine shop looked at the block yet? If so is the main line ok?

I am just going to plastic-gauge the new bearings, and if they come up good will rebuild and test run the engine.

I've never really had much faith in plastigage preferred putting a mic on things hope everything is ok with the block

The crankshaft came today and I made it out to Dan before he closed. He can cut the second key-way. Venoila is supposed to have the rods done Tuesday and I am overnighting them so they should be here Wednesday. I can get a rod and piston out to Dan and he can balance the crankshaft. When that is back in hand it will be time for assembly
