The benefit for the builder lies in the sense of accomplishment and the pleasure of conceiving and executing a one off system for his vintage vehicle that upgrades performance and enhances his vehicle's ability to do what he asks of it in daily driving. Its a work horse, not a trailer queen.
The benefit for the tuner is that by working on one off systems rather than limiting himself to cookie cutter bolt-ons for the more numerous modern applications...... He has the opportunity to learn aspects of tuning that he would not experience otherwise...... Enhancing his skills and experience base. And like the builder, he will have a sense of accomplishment and pride in a job well done.
That's what hotrodding is all about in my view...... Innovation and doing as much of it yourself as you possibly can.

How about the rod and main bearings? My memory says they used inserts but used shims to set the oil clearance. If so was that also changed. I don't agree too often here, but agree with Harry. That is close to the pinnacle of good hot rod technology/engineering. Great stuff!
