 Already started back on Lockjaw! Pulled the engine oil pan Sunday morning and I've set out a plan to build a "BOX" style pan for it!  I've collected a new block, cleaned, bored, decked, with new expansion plugs and cam bearings install, a new cylinder head, ported, polished, new, larger valves, new valve guides and springs, screw in studs, stainless roller rockers, raised intake ports, and milled to make better compression, a new, stroked and indexed crankshaft, a new roller camshaft, a set of straight cut timing gears, and a set of 6" "H" beam rods.  I lack rings and pistons, which will be custom fabricated for me by my friends at Total Seal and RaceTec/AutoTec in the next couple of months.  Ron at Iskenderian is putting together a new set of hydraulic roller lifters for this combination.

The entire assembly will be balanced by one of the local machine shops that specializes in high performance engines!

All of this to build a more modern, reliable engine that produces a good 250hp and will live in today's world of fuels and lubricants!

NEVER FEAR!!  It'll STILL be rat!!  No two major pieces came from the same engine!  Some of the parts are big time salvage stuff, (the camshaft is an old McGurk unit from the '60s, welded up and reground to modern specs!). The block is from ahold Jeep mail truck.  The crank is of unknown parentage, (bought it off of EvilBay!)

I've also collected some fun stuff, like an AOOGAAAAH horn and some other gadgets.  AND!!  I've got a set of the old C4 Corvette wheels and tires to go on it!!

I'm still in the "getting it all together" stages, but look for a new chapter in the Lockjaw saga in the near future!!
