I did my OBR without the vise. Don't own a block set for the big boy.
Used a heavy blanket wrapped around the rifle knees on top to get off the FH, installing the SF MB.
I understand from a call with one of Mark's people that they use green loctite.
I used the rocksett supplied by SF for my comps, just make sure that you have all the timing shims correct on dry runs before using rockset, it starts to gum quickly.
