    Old rings had .085" ring gap (.015" is max recommended).
    Camshaft had one almost flat lobe on #2 Intake, was only getting .132" lift. So yea, this was one tired old 258.

    Motor Stripped down



    New Bearings and Rings done



    Waiting on Cam and valvetrain to arrive to finish motor assembly.

    Made some headway over labour day weekend.

    Cam kit finally showed up so I can finish the motor today and get it bolted back up to the tranny. Still waiting on my TDK frame though so another roadblock in the build.

    Looks good to me.

    Did you use Por15 or Tremclad?

    Slow month, other projects to attend to but have made some headway.

    Put in a Comp Cams 260H complete kit so should help with a little more grunt then that tired old stock worn out cam. Unfortunately I'm still waiting on the frame so there it sits. Put new brakes on both axles and mounted the springs so they're ready to go once the frame finally shows up.
