That was Jody's point also.With their light weight and being aluminum there isn't need too use excessive torque and possibly warp the softer aluminum unit. Key material didn't arrive today so no more progress.

The awaited 1/4" key stock arrived today. Of course for whatever reason it was a little oversized in both directions. Ground it down so it was a nice fit and cut off the inch or so of sized key. Used the ill fated iron S/G pulley wired to a bolt in the block. The desired click click of the torque wench @ 65 ft/lbs was done 3 times and so my Omega short block is finally finished.

Yes The .075 milled and ported wedge head from the presently being used on the long rod engine. I will further unshroud the valves 1/8 right out from the seat as described by Paul from Paulscarts , port out the valve guide pyramids as described by Jody Powell from ARC and last but not least install NR's 6500 rpm valve kit. There is so very little material above the ring package with the VC flat top I am not sure the clearance required for the hemi would be there. The other end of that is I have the shaft roller rockers, push rods , the Aussie speed valve cover as well as the above mention valve kit all for the wedge. Changing head types now would really UP the budget. As well as don't have you machining talent

Certainly used up some stored parts. BUT what is left around ? Option 1 The parts to refresh the current VC gen 3 long rod including the ARP rod bolts for the VC produced billet rod.This would include rod bearing and rings and new 69mm crank if needed. Option 2 The ARC billet rod and the dished 92 mm piston to build a VC gen 2 engine. Again with new rod bearings, rings and 69mm crank if needed. Option 3 Omega 2 This would use Probe 92.25 mm forged piston and ARC billet rod with a 69mm crankshaft. TOO many choices ?
