WAP Terminator Project
10/6/07: Finished deburring the WAP block. Now it is up for sale for $600.00
I have been grinding away on the block. I am about 1/3 of the way done. The day job keeps getting in the way, though.
I studied the block to see where all the casting flash, high speed machining flash and stress risers are that will need to be dressed up as a part of the block prep. I started grinding down the casting flash, high speed machining flash and stress risers on the left rear bottom of the block.
I am using a Dremel tool with a football shaped burr. I have to de-gall the burr occasionally by picking the aluminum out of the burr with a pick. Don't use a stone as it will gall right away. I use the burr or sandpaper roll with the Dremel, or scotchbrite by hand.
Started on 3/3/07:
Bought the new WAP block # M-6010-A46 from Black2000GT last week. Got it on the engine stand today.
FYI, the bolts needed to mount a 4.6L block to an engine stand like mine are M10x100x1.5 pitch.
I have decided not to put a block girdle on the engine as it seems the kits are very hard to find, and it seems most people have come to the conclusion that they are not needed for this type of project.
