Big Noot has been meticulously building this shovelhead motor the last month. About 4 different kinds of black finish . . and now we gotta do the heads, and highlight the fins.
McFarland surfaced the heads, and cut down the steel inserts. This allows the head gasket to squeeze and seal a bit better, and if the inserts pull a bit, we're still good. A fresh valve job and guides - and we had the broken(and boogered up) exhaust thread welded and fixed, ready to be tapped for a stud. She'll run a J-grind Andrews with 8.5:1 pistons, bored and fitted by, Your's Truly.
