GLHS 60 and 4L-Bodies...I also appreciate the oil pump and intermediate shaft info, both were perfect looking condition on teardown, and meshed perfectly before removal (I did the teardown, inspection and initial ck. Of all clearances before removal, so know it was all moving freely and smoothly, and ok when removed (except all rings were within 1/8" of all rings on number 1 piston clocked in a straight line), has been cleaned and line bored already was not off by much at all, and will be clean decked, bored and honed to .020 over as soon as pistons are received and measured, but very nice to have that clocking info and procedure for intermediate shaft to oil pump gear ck, and the port mating of the oil pump.

Appreciate that info guys, owned and raced the car since 93' (Mom bought it new in Feb 85', we bought it from her), but this is first actual teardown, machining, balancing, assembly, of a 2.2L Chrysler for me I personally only had the head off once before to inspect it and practice a mock teardown in 95' and only had it off an hr. (Cc'd the chambers), changed the cam, and dialed it in, put it back together to ck. My time to button up when not under the NHRA gun, to race it the next morning after a class win. Eventually, I will face it, and practice makes perfect.

So, it is really nice to have the info, tips and tricks here as I get back to where I was last in 97' only much improved, and while I only type to thank, ask questions, or have input, rest assured I am reading, soaking in all your previously posted knowledge and advice that applies to my particular combo.

I priory raced big block 60's and 70's Mopar Muscle cars in the 70's through early 90's so all my Mopar engine building experience was 340's, 383's, 440's and 2 426 wedge engines, a whole lot of helping friends and family with Dodge Colts, chevy's of all kinds, ford's, and others, but not until nowadays mid 80' s Chrysler (until they reduced my horsepower rating to where it belonged 11 HP less, and 275 lbs. Lighter would I spend the cash to do the improves that cost a bunch.

They did, family raised and gone, now we're doing it. So, learning a lot more again.
