We didn’t do anything. Took the motor out an put it in
Ouch! Thought so tho.
How did you break the cam in? Most cam manufacturers specify so many minutes,changing rpm between 1000-2000. Never letting it stay at one for too long.
Was in the middle of break in the first time when the motor filled full of coolant. Was doing a high idle an varying around 2000-3000 rpm. The neighbors can testify to us doing that lol straight headers was little loud
Ya know......it might be hard to swallow,but I'd take that engine back to where it was built and use its parts as projectiles to hurl at who built it. Then I'd buy a new unit.
There's only so much a person can stand.....from your attitude on here,to quote Doc Holiday, "you're an oak" lol
Looks like lifters were installed dry and or engine not properly primed as they did not start rotating.
You can tell that due to the angle on the bases.
That high$$ zinc oil apparently is no match for bad installation
Might as well post who did this to save others the same grief!!
Guy is in south Jackson. He posts his services on Craigslist an various fb groups
Finally found the pic of the lifters from my brothers 355.
Did your oil look like a metallic paste?
Mine had a nice metallic shine to it
Well going tomorrow to our old engine builder in Greenville to get him started on new motor
Gah that sucks bad.
If my work schedule wasn’t so odd, I’d come up and help you with engine assembly.
Nothing like the satisfaction of building your own.
I have built my own in the past an you are right but I had more time off back when I was younger. my free time is a precious commodity these days
2 round trips to Greenville from Madison is about 8 hrs.
More than enough time to properly assemble the engine if everything is clean and on site.
Could “blueprint” (not just plastigauge) it in that time, if machine work and bearings are of decent manufacturing quality.
Just something to consider if you have to haul the engine back and forth both times
How do you screw a motor up so bad that the only reuseable parts are the oil pan and valve covers ???
