small block ford problems

Tonight i was talking to the shop where i get my balancing done and the guy was telling me about this ford 302 thats fighting him..

He rebuilt it .030 over and the guy brings it back with the front 2 pistons skuffed real bad #1 and #5 so he goes .040 over and the thing comes back again with the exact same problem.. same cylinders. both times like 100 miles max. the rest of the motor is perfect crank, cam, etc. So he ( me also) is guessing it's a overheating problem??? Any body ever delt with this situtatuion???? Someone told him it might be a reverse rotation water pump on it and that would cause the problem?????

Any ideas of where to look????? this is a new one for me....
