As mentioned in the last issue, this was my first nearly solo attempt at assembling an engine. When the engine was dropped off at Vrbancic Brothers Racing, a few concerns were brought up. Namely I was a bit worried about piston to valve clearance, and camshaft timing. "Not a problem," George Vrbancic replied. "We're here to help." As the engine was disassembled at their shop, to check those possible problem areas, there were some rookie engine builder mistakes that were noticed and corrected.
