She's Spinnin'

My Dad, Throck & I spent the day getting my rotating assembly rotating!
All the valvetrain is assembled, tappets & camshaft installed.
The main & rod bearing clearances are on the nuts. This thing should really run nice!
*Note how the piston is .015" out of the block. I machined .050" off the block to get the piston to head clearance tighter. This also "sunk" the valve deeper in the block, so I machined little shims to go under the valve springs for the correct installed height.
The valve lash isn't adjusted yet in the last picture.
