Got an update, "4.04 x 3.5, scat 4340 crank, compstar small journal rods, Manley pistons, flat tappet solid cam, has to run stock rockers and 2bbl. Block is filled about one third, put steel caps on one through 4. (They were free). Will have 062 vortecs with erson valves a FSP springs. We are going to dyno it, it has a 175 psi cranking compression rule, 2bbl 4412 carb, cast heads and intake rule. I usually run lash caps and longer PR , gives bigger surface for those rockers to run on "

thanks for posting , nice looking machine shop and
some detail work getting done . What are the benefits from turning crank then adding mallory ? Is it just for less windage and drag or does it lessen the load on bearings too ?

If there was to much crank counter weight why are there Mallory slugs in it?

ok got it . I can see the smaller constant radius counterweight being less drag and windage than the holes . Always admire stuska's way of building the grassroots level racers engine . Not the easiest of way of doing things .
