$275 Labor Charge
Centering the bore to the center of mains.
Dowel referance for blueprinting the bore centers.Trust face can be utilized as well.
Boring cylinder.
In this process the block is mounted on the main line and cam line precision bars and bushings. The bars are mounted to the registered locations on the datum plate at a true 90 degrees for the left and right bank in sequence. The zero position for the intake surface is registered as well.

The machinist can reference the main line centerline from the datum plate and has the choice of utilizing the dowel location , thrust surface, or the first cylinder to locate the cylinder center to center distances. These critical dimensions can then be referenced to the factory blueprint for very precise blueprint machining and corrections. A process only made possible through the use of the Rottler precision datum fixture, high precision ball screws, a very accurate D.R.O. and the factory blueprints.
