    2.8 engine in machine shop for build. Questions on sources of internal engine parts. Pistons; Where to find the desired 1.535 compression hgt. pistons? The pistons I am finding have, 1.511 compression hgt. Probably need, 020" over, 93.5mm diameter. Rod bolts, heavy duty? And many other engine parts. Appears the common sources, Summit, Jegs, Rock Auto, AutoZone, scarce listings for the 2.8. Thanks for the help. As usual, DanR has sources and his help has been appreciated.

    Looks like Team Blitz will have a clutch assembly. Camshafts, Using the larger diameter Ford Range block, hence different journal size camshaft bearings. Competition Cams still has blank cores to make cams. Deciding on what cam; 38-240-4 (252 degree duration, .432"lift) or; 38-241-4 (264 degree duration, .428"lift). Reads like most listers are using the middle cam? Input on this one is needed. Competition cams also has lifters #835-12. Thanks, Steve V.
