The bearings were not ran , they spun a rod and had it fixed then I bought it and tore it down to inspect , the crank was colored so I pulled the rod cap to confirm it was fixed , it was all good so I re torqued them , changed the pan and oil pump because some one messed with it and welded the pickup wrong so it was touching the pan . I installed a new pump with pickup HD moroso setup with 8 1/4 inch deep pan and new cam/lifters/gear drive and new gaskets and accessories . Oil pressure is 70 psi cold 25 psi at hot 220 deg idle running 10/30 oil with break in additive . The motor was basically free and replaced a tired 350 so we will see
