This 330FT mill will be a real torque-monster when we're done with it. After breaking the glaze on the cylinders with my hone tool, I chamfered the edges, oiled them up and flipped it over to install the camshaft.

With plenty of Melling Lube I installed the camshaft.....

....then checked the camshaft endplay. Barely 0.001 - a real tighty!

Tomorrow I'll install the crank and button up the bottom.

Back on the Cougar, I prepped the left side inner apron for installation. It took quite a bit of shaping, trimming and some brake-work to get 'er much closer. These 2 parts will go a long way to making the engine compartment the perfect backdrop for a well-detailed engine.
