i plastigaged it and it was a lil tight. i went and swapped the cap with the connecting rod paired on the same rod journal it spun fine. i'm gonna put the other connecting rod and piston in tomorrow and see if it causes me problems. If not thats what the problem was. I've got my grandpa helping me and he's built quite a few engines in his day funny thing is he never used plastigage on any of his he just tightened them down and made sure the rod didn't have any play by hand and spun over easy with a bar turning the crank.
