I'm putting the block back to gether in my 86 Laser XT over the winter and I wanted to know if I should be good to go ahead and assemble everything. I took the original 86 non common block, and had it bored out .020 over to fit the forged JE pistons from forward motion, I had them ceramic coated with the teflon skirts, I got rid of the stock crank and got a forged crank from a shelby daytona milled and polished, t2 rods reconditioned and re-shot-peened, and the whole engine balanced. What else do I need to do or should I be good to go?
One thing, Mike at forward motion said I needed to grind down a spot in the block near the second cylinder for the forged crank will clear. Does anyone know anything about that?
