    I belive you are right, looks as though the pushrods are too long, all of the locks only had about 3 threads holding them on!! pushrods were riding on the cam lobes, lifters seem to have jumped out of their holes. I dont know who built this engine but DAMN! i just spent 400 on a new flywheel and starter, and now this crap!! Boy, what a way to loose intrest, QUICK!!

    I'm sure you're just kidding about losing interest. That's a nice looking boat you have there. Pull the motor, have it rebuilt and you'll have a blast for years to come. More than one person here has bought a boat with a motor that came apart just after making the purchase.

    A miss?

    That is what you call 4 rockers off?

    Are you serious?

    That sucks. Don't let it get you down. Your boat is killer looking. Your ahead of the curve just on that alone. Just build it right. This will be your engine. That's the way I'm thinking of my dilemma.

    The new engine I'm building will be mine. Bigger, Better, Faster & Stronger. I'll be broke and not be able to run it but it will be bad arss

    SDPM (Neil) had a customer bring in a boat that had a miss... " I only noticed it 5 minutes befor I put it on the trailer" That damn engine had more broken parts then when some engines let go at 6,000 rpm.

    If that is from hydro-locking up a motor....and just using a starter. Then all I have to say is, I'm glad my starter must suck.lol
