This is a good video on doing the HVX Mods on the case. Not hard, just take your time and measure correctly.

(New guy here, trying to sort out the gems from the dross.) How closely does your shop balance the rods? IIRC, Bob Hoover was pretty insistent on that as well.

Balanced to within 1 gram. I did the last set of rods myself. Same for the pistons if needed. Most of the time with a new set of pistons and cylinders , the weight of the pistons will be the same.
