I hope that Vette was a restoration of a piece of crap with mis-matching numbers and all. That would be heart breaking if it was a super nice unmolested car.

Chinaman's revenge

Thank god I saved a buck on the 105mm throttle body!! Was loctited with blue 242 when installed, I guess too much heat and meth washes it off - lol.

Happened at idle after a pass waiting for a time slip, sounded like it spun a bearing, it was banging enough to scare me into trailering it home.

It definitely constituted a 'Come on man!'

DAMN, all that work, tearing down an engine over a tiny screw... Did it damage the ring land to where you need to replace that piston ?

Guess I was lucky. I had a 2000 Silverado that the throttle stuck right off idle and I finally traced it to the blade scraping the bore. I took it out and sanded it until it fit and put the same screws back in with no lock tight on them. Of course, it wasn't a race engine, but I drove that truck another 40,000 miles like that.

OMG does that bring back memories!

My brother had rebuilt the motor in his 69 GS400 Skylark. A friend and I helped him get the motor in the car and we were there to take it on the first test drive! Now mind you, it had got a hot cam and this was a four speed car, WHOOO HOOOO. We got about two blocks and there was a knocking, a funky bad knocking. We pulled over on the side of the street and my buddies and I in the car looking out at my brother starring at the motor as there wasn't a hood on the car. He stood there starring for a LONG time, my buddies and I didn't know what to do. He got back in the car and drove it back to his house and started pulling it apart without saying a word.

He ended up finding a screw like that in the cylinder. He never found where it came from and figured it probably fell into the carb when the intake and carb was sitting on the garage floor for the weeks the motor was apart.

I am reminded of this many times when I go to my friend Steve's house, it was literally right in front of this house that my friend now lives in where he pulled over to stare at the motor. LOL

Hope yours goes well and you can get it back together without much work. He had to sleeve that cylinder as I remember.

Brian

Oh WOW! Looks like it beat around in there quite a bit. Maybe next time you'll have to go with the red?

Piston and head are fine. Filed on both, head magnafluxed and pisto/rod measured. They are back in the motor and the heads are on. I'll be setting it back in tonight. Trying to get back to the track on Friday - a week from when this happenned.

On the positive side, the pan gasket was leaking and I had to pull the motor to reseal it, so at least that's done - lol. Also checked bearings, cylinder wear and leak checked the heads. Basically a full visual inspection with the exception of the timing gears and chain.

Trying to make chicken salad from chicken poop 'ya know

Crashfarmer - went right past the red to the green loctite. Next time I'll need to drill those screws out.
