I was planning on doing Crankworks pro rod kit. I will see what other options they have at that time.

Will do on the crank sprocket welding...are there any certain supports to look for? I was reading that benchmark makes a billet one...are they the only company with them out? WIll do some more research but its always nice if those that have done it can point you in the right direction first.

Benchmarks is good, so is Weller Racings. I believe there are a few others.

Below are the parts I plan on ordering...anything im missing or any other recommendations?

CP Piston(11:1)
DLC Pin
Middle Gear Drive Support
Stud Kits? Seems to be alot of recommendations to do that
And of course gaskets.

Crank is being sent to Crankworks and I am getting their pro rod kit...is it true that a DLC wrist pin is not necessary if you do this pro rod kit? They said it obviously wouldn't hurt anything to use one, but that with their bushing they use galling is not an issue.

I considered installing a hotcam...but not sure if I should on a rather stock setup. I don't have plans of any upgrades any time soon.

I would do the DLC pin. Its cheap insurance. The piston pin oiling is the weak link of the stock 660 setup. The CP Piston is much better designed piston pin oiling also, good choice.

I understand what you are saying about cheap insurance...I really don't plan on pulling this motor back down any time soon so I don't mind spending the extra $$.

Any other recommendations while this thing is pulled apart?

Just wanted to say thanks again to all who helped me get this thing back together.

Benchmark hooked me up with the 686 top end and other parts
Crankworks built me a nice crankshaft in a very timely manner

And the forum members answered all of my random questions! Glad to have found this site. Took a while to get the motor back together since I only worked on it in spare/free time(which is a bit hard to come by right now).

Haven't gotten to actually drive it yet, but fired it up as of 10pm this evening.
