The tool worked great and was extremely easy to use. Let alone figure out clearances without having a crank there.

I greatly appreciate Marty's work and craftsmanship.

Without the crank in the engine, you can watch how the rod swings past the cam, the sleeve, etc. You can set an oil pan on and spin the shaft, or watch in the other end of the engine to see if you're dealing with an engine where it may be an issue. Get a visual on things and see if a different cap angle would work better or if there's enough room to run a different rod.

I just made it in an hour or less from a few bucks of left over materials and otherwise scrap and it's saved me many hours. I can set a crank in and mark the fore-aft position of where the rods are going to swing and then set my good parts aside, use this and not have to guess.

For example I'm working with someone hundreds of miles away and they wanted to run a longer stroke in a narrower block.....will it fit? What does a guy do when it doesn't?....or should we use a different combination. For a few bucks postage things get figured out up front and I don't need the block or core parts to get most of the job done.

Made one of those myself years ago I make the journals out of nylon so they absorb any foreign matter.
