Default CR500 rebuild

Iím pretty mechanically inclined and think I can manage a rebuild but donít have any of the pullers or micrometers etc to measure tolerances and clean and recondition large parts like crankcases etc. I saw a thread by Dogger315 CR500 engine build pictorial. I was impressed by his thoroughness and was wondering if anyone knows how to get in contact with him. I donít have enough posts to email a member. Should I contact this fine gentleman and have him build it or should I do this myself. I do have 12 ton shop press and lots of tools but not a crank installation tool or case separator etc. in any case what is the best shop manual for rebuilding these engines. Do the Hanes manuals cover this stuff?

Did you ever rebuild it? I can get in touch with Dogger, I talk to him regularly. I also build CR500's a lot, Dogger is into racing cars heavy now.
