    Pic related to the paint paragraph :
    On its way to the paint shop and once arrived there
    Before leaving the house we gave her a quick bath, she was looking sweet after that! After a year spent in the garage without being covered and being working around and on the car she no longer white but more dusty grey/black lol

    Here are some pics of the numbers on the crank if someone here can enlighten me with those just to know where they come from.
    Even if I'm not going to use them back, I found it interesting to know.

    looking better and better. My only concern is your reuse of the front sway bar. there is usually a size difference between front and rear sway bars, the rear is smaller. If yours are the same this can lead to some strange problems in the suspension.

    Front sway bar is a 1 1/4" thick, and the rear is the factory front sway bar didn't take the measurement but it is smaller for sure.

    Is that good Quikbird or will this lead to some strange problems in the suspension? The important thing if I understand correctly what you said, is to have different sizes between the front and rear sway bar, with the front sway bar bigger than the rear one correct?

    Ok thanks for that RonLiv. Is that compatible with my engine or was I lucky that the engine was running? Harshly but it was moving the car from point A to B though...

    I'm really not the guy to answer that question. My understanding is the 383 HP should have the crank from the 440 though. So I see no reason why it wouldn't be OK. If it was rough might be the cam? This was the problem with my car. It had a purple cam and would hardly idle. Putting the stock one back it settled it down. But again, I'm not anywhere near qualified to give you a solid answer.

    Let us know what the machines say. Those cylinder wall's look pretty good. No pitting or any scratches that I could see. Once he runs the mic's the hole cylinder that will tell the story. :thumbsup2:
