Well no I didn't, but the gunk wont effect it untill it has been running for a while (on the first motor it was about 45 minutes to an hour for it to lost pressure), when the motors not running obviously the pump stops sucking so the gunk settles down in the pan, then when the motor starts it begins to stick to clog screen.
Anyway heres the stuff from yesterday:
Got her out and started the teardown...
Had to jack up the car an inch or two so the hoist would fit but other than that things went well:
Dad and his projects, He was waiting for me to get this done and give him his Garage space back
Found this in the intake though, two of them had protrusions but he rest were dead near perfect, no biggie, its gonna come out again anyway
We found that the balance shaft has a some play in it, up/down/left/right play, bearings on the front are likely worn but the play is coming from the back it seems like.
When you rotate the push rods, i forget how many have it but about 6 i think, you can rotate them and feel a bump, seems like they stopped rotating and started to wear out a spot.
The rocker on the #2 cylinder looks like one side stopped rotating, its the only one that looks like this:
There was more on there before the picture, dad picked it off, but it was just a bit smaller than a quarter size blob of gunk on the screen in the center.
Bottom of the pan
Scraped out of the pan:
Main bearing on the front is worn out, not really surprised here.
Rod bearing cap, (we only checked the #1 rod for now since I'm gone during the week , so I'm not wondering all week what stuff looks like), They aren't worn to the copper but it is scuffed really bad, none of the several
pictures we took came out great but heres a couple that came out the best of the bunch:
