Default Need a motor

Well it is official!! Rod Bearing Numero Uno.

Pulled the pan off today and looked in to find METAL directly below #1and #2. So I pulled #2 showed some wear......but nothing terminal.
Pulled #1 and the mystery was solved as well as any thought of a fix.

I will post up pics shortly incase anyone is interested.

Removal of the oil pan was extremely easy.....I supported the motor with a floor jack and 2x4 (1 ft. long) under the Trans pan. I used a 3/8" universal 1/4" drive with ext to remove the pan bolts that are partially blocked by the mount.

Tonight I will reassemble the bottom and reinstall the pan so I can at least move the car while preparing for a engine change.

What is the torque spec for the bearing caps?...and the pan bolts?

Anyone have a great freshly built motor.....near Chicago?
