    Default well more 468 issues, arhhhhhhhhhhh

    well i got my heads back friday and the machine shop couldn't find anything wrong with the rh head, even though i know i saw #6 shoot alil water out when i water pressure tested the motor, also #7 shot out some. well he said he found a exhaust guide leaking on #7, fixed that but couldn't find anything wrong with the other head. so i get home friday, wait for it cool down, go out and start cleaning up the block to slap heads back on, on the rh i see that #6 has a thin sleeve in it, immediately i know where the water got into the cylinder at. rotated the motor till the piston was down, and sho nuff, a 6in crack in the bottom of the sleeve when the block got air exposed, rust highlighted the crack for me, never saw it the prior weekend when i took the heads off. i had my 10yr old yank the shortblock back outta the boat and once he had it hanging , we stuck it on a stand and busted the block down. found that the bottom end was fully balanced had arp waveloc rod bolts on dimple rods, with forged 10.5 to 1 pistons(which still look new). not sure but the crank looks to have been nitrated, cause its black, but the p# on it show's to be 454 cast anyways, someone knifed the throws and did a shitload of work to a cast crank. i've got the block in my blazer, i'll send it over for a thick sleeve after lunch cool the bottom end is balanced though!

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    bearings looked new! i'm still putting a fresh set back in, fresh set of rings opened up for alil nitrous in case someone wants to put some on, i'm not , well unless i can't get rid of it this yr., if that happens i'll buy another hitman kit over the winter and stick on it. could let it turn to 6500 if i wanted to, i was pissed off bout the sleeve, but felt alil better after seeing it was for sure a balanced rotating assembly.


    yeah, i herd you pick it up once, sounded like you dropped the phone or something

    i called him 5minutes ago to let him know that i was sending the block over and needed it back quik, he put me on hold for a couple minutes, came back and said "i've got the thick sleeve in stock, get it over here" if i get it over there today , i'll have it back by wed-thurs the lastest. i send him all the machine work from the dealership, so he jumps on my stuff when i ask him too. prob spend 500-1000 a month there thru the dealer, not much but nuff to be a "valued customer"

    if i get the impellor in and the motor lit off friday nite, i'll be beating on it all weekend trying to get both boats ready for cobb but it ain't looking good with all the issues we've had this past week. when it spit the dizzy outta the turbo boat, the turbos got hurt and we're rebuilding them tommorrow nite 251 bucks worth of bushings and crap we may end up just goin to broken bow sunday to race instead of racing at cobb. even if i'm not ready in time i wanna go, at least i could trailer for hass.

    Damn sounds like you have a cloud above you, busted a distributor and killed the turbos?!?!?

    Good luck getting everything back together.
