Your first engine build, suggests you are not a machinist or own a full automotive machine shop. In which case, there is literally nothing that "you" can do.

That is not anything you will learn on a forum, especially this one.

Most of the really good engine builders, become good over time........as they learn what works for them. Most is splattered all over the internet for you to read, but the good **** (which isn't necessarily the same for all builders) is learned with time.

We have an automotive machinist school here in Houston, Texas. I never attended (although I worked in an performance oriented automotive machine shop for near 10 years). From being in the business, I did come to know some of the students over the years and some of the instructors. The schools name is School for Automotive Machinist, or SAM. It is not even remotely cheap to go there, but it is pretty much the only fast track to becoming what you want. They have a website. Check it out.

There are a lot of books out that will help you. Building an engine isn't really rocket science but there's a lot to it. Especially when you get into building high performance engines. Try this link and pickup one or two of the books on the list. Then maybe subscribe to a magazine or online magazine and check the articles for "How To" Builds. Engine Masters is one of my favorite publications.

I don't think we need to jump down the kids/guys throat. A bit of a silly, vague question? Of course it is.

The "How to Hotrod....." books were around when I was young. Probably still a good start. But what skill level are you at? Do you have a car? Work on cars? Need more info.

Default EAP Engine Model

Your an engine "re-builder" as are the above stated "experts".

How to learn :

1. Buy/demo EAP from Performance Trends, the ability to do a "cloud" rebuild would then exist.
2. ALL the manufactures of the items needed provide engineering specification on the sites.
3. The ability to Google ALL questions, with current correct answers is another good method.

Lance, BTW you could ask for my help.

you can work over your oil passages, oil return holes, screen epoxy/deburr if you like clearance cam gear all kinds of stuff. Read up on it first cant put metal back. Then drop off to your machinist. Fun stuff. Have your machinist get on top of your oil pump 1 or 2 things that can be done. Prefer std volume hig pressure
Have an older melling HV and get a lot of chatter cant get a steady timing mark ugh.
