    440 crank- grind or no?

    I bought this crank from a machine shop on eBay. Listing said magnafuxed, hot tanked, superfinished, “ready to go”. Mains are std. and rods turned 0.010. I was surprised to see the lines and gouges on the mains. If polished (looks like it was) and spots not raised should I install crank as...

    440 rb. Half or fully grooved bearings?

    I need to order new main bearings for my ‘78 440. It’s a street car/car show car and not a race car. Should I use 1/2 or fully grooved bearings? I’ve seen lots of opinions online for each. Motortrend article recommended 1/2 grooved…? Thanks Sonny

    440 valve train question

    I’m a few weeks away from rebuilding my 440. I’ve purchased 440 source stealth heads, new stock pushrods and stock stamped rockers. I also bought the K6401 cam from summit racing. Will the lift of this cam allow me to keep these stock components (pushrods and rockers)? Sonny

    440 hydraulic lifter styles- please educate me

    It did not sit but it took way to long to first fire the engine. I had carb and ignition issues and I felt like it took way to many cranks before I fired it. I know it should fire up and rev quickly for 20-30 minutes. It may have lost all the pre lube by the time I got it cranked.
