351c Short Block screw Up
So, I picked up a 1972 Q-Code 4v 351c to drop in my 1986 GT. The shortblock had been balanced, blue-printed, bored .30 over, etc. Basically a complete machine shop freshening up, but that was 7 years prior to me purchasing it.
Last night I disassembled the short block to make sure everything was in good order still. I marked each piston's orientation in the block (arrow pointing foward), and scribed a line in the base of the rods and caps to keep them paired.
However, i forgot to number the pistons to remember which cylinder they belong to... Basically what i am trying to find out is can i put it back together (possibly mixed up order) without it shaking itself apart when i fire it up? Or do i need to take somewhere to have it re-balanced? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.
