Cutting Splines
We are about to makae a pair of custom axles for the Blueberry so that we can better mate the VW and Fiat CV joints and to eliminate the the welding that we currently have used to marry the two together.

Crankshaft Balancing Counter Weight Reduction
This big block Chevy engine is getting a trim job on the crankshaft counter weights because we are installing some .400" longer connecting rods with some very light forgerd pistons. We had to remove a total of 400 grams to get the crankshaft to balance correctly.

Blueprint 103 - Connecting Rods
Connecting rods are the crux of the engine. They're responsible for carrying the force of the explosions that occur in the combustion chamber and using it to turn the crankshaft. Oil clearance specifications of the "big end" and "small end" are crucial to maintaining consistent oil pressure. In this video we take 3 measurements: Rod Gap Rod Journal (also called Crank Pin) Diameters "Big End" Bore diameter Using the Journal diameters and the "Big End" Bores, you can calculate your oil clearances of each bearing. The process is illustrated here. Anyone rebuilding an engine who doesn't know its history should check all of these clearances whether or not they're re-using the rods. If the crank, bearings or connecting rods are going to be replaced, it's imperative that you measure the new parts as well to ensure they're in spec.
