Louis, the paper is used to measure the plasti-gage strips. Basically you put the plasti-gauge in the rods and mains, torque it down and it flattens out the plasti-gage, then you take the paper with the measurements and match it to the smashed plasti-gage, then you have your clearances. Not exactly precision measurements mind you but it gets you in the ball park.

Feeler gauges are metal, flat pieces of stainless that are individually sized in inches and mm. Totally different use.

gotcha... I have plenty of feeler guages in my tool box. I figured it was something along those lines but I couldn't put it all together not knowing what the line on the bearing was from. Way cool. so I am guessing the bolts for the rod caps and mains are muti-use. Not the throw away kind after they are torqued down and removed.

Louis the rod bolts can be reused....I am sure its not good to do it more then 1 or 2 times but....Ironically the rod bolts are smaller then the stock bolts and only require 25lbs tq as opposed to 48lbs for the stock ones. That has me a little concerned but...thats what they call for. Another method is to measure the rod bolt stretch after torquing, normally you torque them to get .005-.007 stretch but.....I don't have the bolt tester etc so I am just torquing them to 25lbs and hoping for the best. They are 220k psi bolts. There is an upgrade for these rods and I could have gotten 280k psi bolts but the rods are about $200 more then these..... I think these will be fine for me, I will likely never make more then 450hp anyway....

I am going to try to.....I am waiting on the head to come back from Port Tech, I have to order a couple things for the motor from Ron Ayers, also need a different jet for the water injection and that comes from England. After its all back together and running, I will get it to Cheese to get a couple maps built......I SHOULD have everything done by the mile. I need a new front tire also for the mile.
