I think this motor needs to go to the machine shop. First you mixed up a few rod caps, then you messed up a piston and replaced it with ?????How did you put the others on the rods? 20 ton press? Engine assembly is not rocket science, it is however technical. Most anyone can change a tire, but engine assembly? Best left to someone who knows what they are doing.
