Well I pulled the mill apart last week and sent her in to the machine shop. Heres what the bearings looked like. :)st Glad I pulled her down when I did. It was running great when I pulled it off of the water and I noticed some screwy stuff when I started looking into the motor last year. Decided I was going to re-ring and bearing the engine. Pulled the bearings and went, "Woah!"

I found some sand in the lifter galley. Couldn't tell if it leaked out of the water jackets when the intake was off or I had a bigger trouble. Also noticed a slight leak from one of the head gaskets. Figured i was this far might as well go the rest of the way.

Mostly for peace of mind to know what is in the motor, and its clearances. I didn't build it to begin with and knew nothing of it history. Apparently it had been detonated a bunch before I got by looking at the number 1 rod bearing.

This is my first big block build. The biggest thing I have built before this was two stroke stuff. Its quite a step up from a briggs engine!
