If its not to far,drive the engine down there and be there when they take it apart?Let him explain what happened while you are looking at it. a picture is worth a 1,000 words. example; if the oil pick up is sitting in the bottom of the pan,,,not a thing you did would cause that.It takes 15 minutes to take an engine apart,,,
That does make since that if there is going to be a problem it would be earlier on. I just can't think of anything I could have done. Not alot of drive time on it and rarely getting on it. Heck, its supposed to have all the goodies down bottom, so it really should'nt matter anyway, but I do understand what your saying. I do remember him being 2 months behind on my motor and him telling me he had a guy out and they were working to get it out soon. Sure hope everything was torqued right, but then again you would think like you said that it would have aready happen. Not sure!! Wish, I could go up there when they take it apart, but It is way to far to drive. Im going to have to get him to take pictures. I will take your advice on the roller camshaft. I should have done that from the get go!!
