The short block is almost done, but I noticed something wrong - it only has 8 piston assemblies installed. I sat down with the builder and said he has a math problem because he can only count to 8 and there's 10 holes. He laughed and said its because 2 of the bearing sets were too tight (mislabeled boxes) so he's waiting for new ones.

He had to hone the main saddles because Clevite didn't have the half-size he needed in the series he ordered. So, he made a little more clearance for the standard sizes. FYI, the Viper's mains are a whopping 3" OD! His used stones would not reach the diameter he needed, so he bought another fresh set to get all the way to 3.125".
