Yeah, I wrote my post wrong. The block I saw that was ruined was decked at the angle the valves were. MY BAD. It looked pretty weird let me tell you. There is a chance the guy still has it and if he does I will get a picture of it.

Even better, Dale could actually have said: "- so there will be some variance, due to the various variances in the VARIOUS drawings." DD

You rotten bastards! Said with all the affection it might convey. This is the challenge of our "American" language (and spoken variants) . . . a simple word can mean SO many different things . . . depending on the context, the delivery, the situation. Something can go from an obvious insult, to a warm greeting amongst friends.

So . . . "bastards" can surely be a term of endearment (at least I think so) - and was written as such up above. LOL

PS: I grew up in SoCal . . . was hard to explain to my newly arrived foreign friends that the word "Dude" could mean at least a half dozen things . . . all depending on the specifics of the situation, the delivery and the deliverer . . .

Now don't get me started on the word "Sonszabitches" . . . which in my Finnish culture is quite prevalent . . .

I hope that this is not the 'finish' to this interesting commentary on the idiosyncrasies and VARIOUS VARIATIONS of the 'Merikin language. I really enjoy playing with words! DD

Apparently there is a VARIANCE on the original Ford drawings?? Or, the interpretation of same. The original drawings I own clearly show the camshaft offset at .0192 to .0232. It is difficult for me to imagine a wider VARIANCE in the tolerances for this dimension.

Or perhaps you have obsolete drawings?

I'm sure we're looking at the same drawing . . . not sure of the .0232 is potentially a .0292 --- have stared and stared at it. In either case, it is more variance than any other dimension on any of the drawings I've looked at (or in dang near any mechanical drawing related to any engine part I've ever seen - from anybody!).

I think I'll rework my CAD model and see WHAT actual dimension for the CAM offset, results in the specific valve angles shown (which don't have a variance).
