Discussion and questions related to the course Practical Engine Building
Is it me or did you not show the installation of the crankshaft and checking the thrust clearance? Referring to LS1 Practical Example short block assembly video.
I watched it last weekend a I didn't see him install it either. I was I interested in what he used for the lube on the main bearings. I'm assuming mineral oil since he used that on the con rod bearings.
Which video, and where - ah, step 7? CBF watching them all through, is it possible one of the others mentioned it during the pre-assembly check - it is normal practice to do several trial assemblies of the engine to confirm everything actually fits together correctly, confirm clearances (especially with stroker cranks), deck heights, etc.
