Preparing case

I did a few things to the case such as threaded the oil galleys, removed some flashing and cleaned the case.

The pic below is the handy work of Adrian at Headflow Masters where he installed a plug to do his special full flow system.  You can also see where he installed a cylindrical (like a pipe) in the bottom hole (oil pressure by pass).  

In these next pics, you can see the saddle bearings.

This one which is #2, you can see the numbers from the bearing which indicates that it was being pounded by the crank.  Probably when I was have the trouble with the carbs and the engine ran unevenly.

I will be looking up Adrian again to have another align bore done to the case and cut the thrust bearing.  Not sure it the thrust is pounded out or not.
