need to tear it down and see all whats been hurt but as of now #7 rod in my 460+.060 is in two slightly bent pieces. now i am on the fence of a stroker, or a quick r and r so i can still have the season. few questions about what i want
would it be beneficial to install half ,3/4/ or full grove bearings over the stock style? does anyone have part numbers for such? i doubt there could be too much oil at 5000+ RPM
if i go stroker would longevity be better with the longer rod and higher pin, to lessen side load on the piston skirt and wrist pin? the rotating assemblies i have found do not give different rod lengths and pin locations on the pistons.
or do these motors have enough wall height that a 4.5 stroke doesnt affect the life? i only know small block chevys so this is all new to me.
also how would i be able to determine if either my c9 or d1 block could be taken to +.080? my c9 is +.060 and my d1 is at +.030 with heavy backyard for a whole year rust
