I have not seen the engine yet. This guy is a shop owner and builds 100 or so motors a year so i would bet the rods are rightous..... Not sure about the detonation. That thought crossed my mind but he told me the other 6 cylinders (2,3,4 6,7,8) look great. I am going over friday night to do some work on my own stuff and i am going to check it out.
5.0 freak, this guy builds like 100 motors a year. I am sure he double and triple checked all his work. especially after the first time it came back. Do you know if the reverse rotation water pumps come in cast iron???? I was told they are all aluminum, but i was not sure if an aftermarket pump might be cast iron???? Is there an easy way to tell if it is a reverse rotation pump????
thanks guys for the help,Keith
