The Torch You're doing an awesome job Wiz

autowiz And here are a few pictures of the crankshaft sitting in the block..





I still have to fit and run a drill bit through the holes on each of the main caps to get the crank locked in place. And then I can start on the rods and pistons. I still have to build the engine stand at some point here, too.

autowiz So I got to spend some time with my fun project and I got all the pieces of the crankshaft printed out..



And assembled..

I can do better. I printed the intake with a 0.4mm diameter nozzle and 0.2mm layer height. I could change nozzles to a 0.2mm and command a 0.025mm layer height. It will just take days to print. But should look flawless.

autowiz The parts I ordered from https://www.makerrx.com/ have shown up. Here is how the LS3 hardware kit comes packaged..





And here are the timing 'chain' the valve springs, and the rod, main, and camshaft bearings..



Now i can start working on the crank and the cam. But first, I need a stand to bolt the block to. Here is how the engine stand arrived..



So i have my work cut out for me before i can even get this motor on a stand. Looks like i might need the dremel.

autowiz This LS3 build is moving right along. I am already precision balancing internals..



06-07-2019 10:00 AM
autowiz I am waiting on hardware before I can really work on the internals and now I am waiting on more silk silver PLA before I can start printing the head castings so I am jumping around to see what some of the other external pieces are gonna look like. I printed this LH exhaust header on my home made printer, Printalicious..



Because my Black Widow printer is spending the next 20 hours printing out the intake manifold..

I think it is somewhere around 1/5 scale. Everything looks just like the real part. I have also printed out the main caps..



And rear, valley, and timing covers..

raidmagic If you took the picture at the right angle you could believe that's a real block.
