Ugh.  Bad news today.
 
Machine shop called and said block needs to be bored.
So, since I now have to pop for new pistons, I told hom to go .030 over and to zero plane the deck.  Fuggit.
 
By the way, what does 30 over bring the cubes to?

Good luck with this one. Maybe you shoulda considered a crate BB hemi right from the start, probably about the same money as what you've spent so far.

Like I told you before, the idea of illegals slapping together my engine with questionable parts makes me nervous.  Warrantee or no warrantee.  I am NOT pulling this engine a third time!  A pro built engine is way beyond my means.  So it's back to DIY.

Already got a Melling hi-vol/hi-press oil pump from the orig. 440-WOB
Along with all the other external goodies.
 
With the machine work, it looks like I can do this for under 2 grand.
About the same $$ as a rebuilt crate motor from a sweat shop using dubious labor and materials.  Yah, yah.  I know they come with a warrantee but I'd rather cut off my right cajone before pulling that engine a THIRD time...

You want a high volume oil pump...not high pressure.....

high pressure is for race engines with loose bearing clearances.....with a tight new crank in there you might have an answer to why the last engine failed.....

Lea,
The stuff I chose, and where I bought it was determined by buying the best stuff I could at the lowest price I could find anywhere.  I also took into consideration shipping costs.  
Also, all the EXTERNALS I'm reusing from 440-WOB I, was gotton from mostly Rock & Summitt, also.  I just couldn't find anybody cheaper than those two.  440 Source has stuff NOBODY else has.  Between those three, you've got it made.
 
This build hit my wallet much harder because of the pistons and higher performance valve train.

OK.  Im back on track. 
After one delay after another at the machine shop, I got the block and heads back.
Block .030 over.
Heads: Hardened seats, new springs, valves, retainers, keepers, and seals.
Rods honed nad new pisons pressed in.
 
I got the crank and pistons in this morning.
 
I added up all my receipts.  $3100.   (Shut up, Al!)
