Hi all ,
Im actually getting my frank build into motion after starting a thread a while back , well heres a quick catch up . My project is a k24a3/k20z4 frank build in my fn2 ctr after buying a full k24 many months ago and having it all stripped and k20 stripped, funds and xmas came quick. So here I am after all those dreaded supplier issues you never think will happen to you and all that comes with taking on a engine build. Ive finally got the block and rotating assembly in machine shop and will soon be able to get down to the good stuff.

No he has done my block machine work and some advice on bearing clearances, but I am going to assemble block myself. I then am sending the head off to him to have a refresh and some new cams .

I could live with that to be honest. Was always told balancing the crank was big money.... obviously not.

Cheers :)

DONS FRANK BUILD
So it's been a while since I've posted how I've been getting on, well it's been a good been a good reality check thinking I could build a engine while doing a full time job in my time frame lol. Before i get into the the build I've purchased some more items for the build off this forum ?, a nice tegiwa decat mani and flashpro thanks to Kipling.
Now onto the build I have now checked and rechecked all my bearing clearances and completed short block assembly. I did a dummy assembly and had to adjust my #1 cylinder oil squirter a bit but other than that all was in tolerances ( I Hope).
Finally got to unwrap my fresh cylinder head with new oem valves and beehive springs and retainers from Ian @ Clockwise motion along with alot of handy tips on getting it setup.
I have now installed cylinder head and cams (BC 0043-2 equivalent grind from clockwise motion) , after many hours finally got them timed . A few weeks on and another payday lol I've got to open some new boxes with my rrc oil pump kit and new oil pan and got those installed and then done my final assembly of the cams, rocker assembly and timing chain etc. Here's some pics of my longblock finally complete minus rocker cover fitted.

Now to fit all ancillary parts then get my flywheel,clutch and gearbox fitted which I came across a touch after many,many calls finding out my gearbox has LSD standard ??.
