    Lunati Cam/lifter went flat during break in

    @PRHeads, have you had a chance to test those new comp Hyd roller lifters other than the one big mopar you dyno’d last fall? Those sounded like a good option from that test.

    Big Torque 499' Stroker with stock manifolds

    I don’t get the whole stay stock stroke to save money. He’s already got the stroker crank on the shelf. Good rods and pistons cost the same for a 440 as they do a stroker. Personally I’d use cnc stealths and paint them orange. That’ll keep the stock look with more potential. Port the six pack...

    Ring Gap questions

    I always gap my second rings .002-.004 bigger than the top. Open them all up.

    Recommendations for Hemi intake gaskets and intake stud kit

    I just used flat out gaskets on mine. Glued to the heads with weatherstrip adhesive. I vasolined the intake side. RTV always on China walls.

    She’s been ported pretty big

    Degreeing cam on my 505

    bump it to the 4 degree advance spot and see how it comes out. It’s usually not an exact 4 degrees. I’d never start out 2 degrees retarted on a street engine. Better off to be on the other side. As the chain stretches it’ll fall right into place.

    Anyone running a Quick fuel carb on a 440?

    That’s a small carb for a 440. You’d be fine with a QF 850 1.40 Venturi or a QF 950 1.45 Venturi. Still small carbs compared to and old school 850 1.56 Venturi.

    Stroker options

    I love strokers, those pistons are going to be an issue though, espically with closed chamber iron head. Either swap pistons or run the 383.

    Cam Bearing Alignment

    Yep, just needs a little touch up.. I’d say #2 looks like it was probably installed just a touch cocked. I always polish them with a red scotch brite after I hit them with the Bearing knife.

    Hand ring filer vs electric

    Hand filer is just fine. The elect is worth it if you are building engines as a living. Something to keep in mind, you can ruin some rings in a hurry on one of these elect filers. They remove material quick.

    Cam Bearing Alignment

    The holes absolutely fine. Pretty normal to have to scrape bearings on a big mopar. The housing bore machining from the factory wasn’t stellar. The shop should have fit a cam when they installed the bearings.

    Break In Oil! Which one to use for my 440?

    Only thing critical on a Hyd roller engine is using a lighter weight oil. Nothing heavier than 10w-40 for lifter performance. Start off with conventional and switch to syn later on.

    Break In Oil! Which one to use for my 440?

    I’ve used BR-30 successfully as well on several engines.

    Grinding Clearances for rod bolts on stroker 400

    Small scratch looks like nothing, it’s either from the wiper on the hone or the bore gauge. Wipe your cylinders out with lacquer thinner, It’ll clean them better.

    Issues with main bearing clearance

    Did you torque up the block and check the housing bores without the main bearings? Crank looks ok if the measurements are accurate. My guess is it’s just a little tighter on 1&2 housing bores. A good machine shop can easily touch up the block if that’s the case. Did you set the bore gauge up off...

    Trick Flow 240 vs Stealth heads

    For a little over a grand MCH use to cnc your heads and do a valve job. I thought that was a deal. Agree you have to focus on moving some volume through the cnc machine. It’s not labor intensive. Load the head, zero it and run the program. I use to run the 5 axis at livernois. I could do...
