3. Once all torn down, Brent shipped everything off to Dale Meers Racing Engines in Buffalo, Kentucky. Dale has done Brent’s machine work for years, so he is very familiar with his quality of workmanship. Brent says “When I went into business for myself, I decided to cut down on overhead, so I continued to use Dale’s services instead of buying all the expensive equipment.” While at Dale’s, the block was pressure tested and crack checked. It was then baked and walnut shell blasted. It needed one sleeve, and that was installed. It was then bored/honed with torque plates to a 4.280-inch bore. It was align honed with ARP main bolts, then square decked so that the pistons were 0.005-inch in the hole.
