ryan, dont defend yourself,the guys here are trying to help you.If you ruined a rod,just buy a used short block or good core.Pay someone to watch you assemble the engine.Its a lot cheaper to learn the correct way than to replace the broken parts.If that rod let go on a fresh rebuild and windowed your block then all that would be left might be the intake and water pump,,,We all are still learning and we share our experiences both good and bad.

Nothing beats the sound of a fresh engine coming to life especially after doing your own assembly.
