Well guys I got it all apart and for the most part it lo \:D/ fine \:D/ ..I had my machinist take a look at it and only thing he found and I seen it also was there is a spot on #2 and #3 main bearing bearing on the top side. There is a shiny spot
on the outer edges both facing each other.. So what where going to do is send it out to see if has a slight bent to it and give it a polish while it's there.
Other than that it all looks like new...So where did the iron and the aluminum come from!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
On another note I didn't take the oil pump apart yet and it's one of those Titen pumps and there bullet aluminum so
that's next... O:)

Oh and the piston pins look like new and have been running 11 inches of vacuum... =;

Glad to hear that everything is OK Barry. I know that's a load off your mind!! Now, what are you going to change while it's down? O:) Are the pistons gas ported? :-k ;-)

Pistons are already gas ported =; ...They can that way from Wisco...
I don't think I am going to do anything...But I am going to check the springs for sure as I
have another set of them here...
I will see if I can post some pictures of those bearings later if I have time..
