UGH!! Damn that sucks, Bill. I know you're a pro, but haven't you done enough engine work already?! Good luck, and I'm sure it'll be fast at least.

Correction....One

When I made the well documented "stupid mistake" there were two slight marks on the crank. If someone came here and asked..I would be the first to say "have it turned and oversize the bearings". Using emery cloth made for polishing the crank (pun away ) the marks were cleaned up to the point of not being able to feel them. Still visible though. I knew the chance was there for the bearings to wear prematurely. And they did.

At this point..here'* what I'll have,
I'll get the new motor and inspect the cam closely. Oil pressure never hit 0 and there were no chunks in the oil...Therefore unless the pick up tube says differently I will assume the cam, springs and timing chain "should" be reusable. Inspection will make the final determination.

Install the new parts onto the new motor, drop it in and enjoy. Meanwhile the old motor should only need a crank and bearings to be a good motor again. It has new piston rings and duplicate parts for oil pan, intake manifold. and supercharger. it'* fate has not been decided...but it has potential.

Kinda funny..the motor puts one hand on the radiator support and tosses it'* legs over...

At this point there is no challenge to motor pulling for me. I only lay underneath once and don't get up for any tools. I only lean in once...I only sit by the passenger side tire once.

Presto...it'* done.

I'll bet your hands aren't even getting dirty. Something good to consider despite the gloominess of the situation.

When I pulled the motor the first time.. I cleaned the entire motor and engine bay thoroughly. Things are easy moving, clean and being the third time..this should be the charm.

There'* something we should suggest to people when they pull their motors..clean subframe and bay.. it'* much nicer going back together.
