that may not be a problem
seems on the proline qr engines,
they are built tight

mine ran for 6000 miles before it jumped timing
[i helped]
at that time we replaced the head and timing components

while doing so everybody commented on how hard it was to turn over
the rings had not even fully seated yet

with new cylinder-head

I haz proline engine. I had tight bearings. I pulled pan, swapped crank, and went to Clevite Bearings.

I have acl coated with calico coating so the thickness got tighter after doing that so the machine shop had to cleanwce the main journals the thrust was also too tight with the b16 crank and had to shave the step off the step location on crank to were everything was .23.-25 tolerance turn over like butter even with piston rings not yet seated...as before was .1 and couldn't turn it

well 3 years and 10k miles
[lots of shenanigans per mile,]

it loosened up, still no oil use
[but how would i know?
oil is changed very frequently]

i count no oil loss if,
after enough hard runs to warrant an oil change,
there is still a full pan by dipstick reading

starts are easier even with my tiny
[better start 1st click] battery

and power is up
as the new dyno will show

[but will that be the meth, the added boost, lol?]
who knows

i'm happy with the motor

it's kinna gone back to its heritage
as a truck motor
high tq low rpm

craving longevity now

this is the best street motor
i have run in years

[after 3 years of tightening, loctite baths, and complaining,
maintenance has dropped off too]

as previously mentioned
i don't think taking material off this crank is a good idea

however this is not an ultimate 1000hp build
so prob not of consequence

problem is
why with added clearance does it not turn over?
is there some other factor we are missing?

** Updated parts list **

Still getting parts in including some cool custom parts. Ill try and put up pics later. I changed from C1 cams to the 2J V2. I need a shop to swap out the cams for me. The block just needs a second opinion on some tweaking and confirmation of clearances before I finally put it all together. Ive been waiting so dam long for this.

I have big hopes for body work and paint. Our company has a body shop within driving distance so I think Ill have them do it. Thinking maybe some kind of dark grey but not so gun metal. Ill try and go through House of Kolors so I can see various shades and such. I dont know. Might need a new front and rear bumper too.

The build is still goin and goin good. Im approaching this last hump triumphantly!

Yeah, its a nice true grey with no flake.


I love this build. I've been on the forever build too man. Keep it up!


Did you have your block decked and honed by Darton (east) as well? i know they have a torque plate.
