Thoeretically it should have lasted a season. This is my backup shortblock. I tore my main shortblock up twice with oiling issues that I have now figured out, but, I was turning it in the nines too. I hope to have it back up and running by the first of September. I did take two and four main bearings out of this short block on the second time out due to tune(too much timing @ only 35*). I am now down to 32* full advance and it seems to be holding up. There is something to be said for very sensitive tuning when using iron heads, mega compression, and turning one much over 8000 for 15-20 seconds. What works well on the dyno will likely trash on the track.
I have another video of a 9100 rpm run where I also took first at St Peters MO fair. Not too good, my wife decided for some reason she had to cover her ears when I come by!!!
In my association I have pulled 7 times and won 5. I hope to do well at the MO State Fair next Sunday.
Thanks to all, for the very kind words.
