Dammit! Bent Rod.

Theres nothing like the feeling of thinking you have everything to get a job done and then something comes up. Yeah I know it's the nature of the beast but I'd like smooth sailing at least once. Would anyone happen to have a piston and rod (all standard) setup for the #5 hole for a 351W? This just sucks.

Re: Dammit! Bent Rod.

you might want to check the bearing surfaces and the cylinder walls for scuffing due to the side load from the bent rod. i saw scoring and what not on a motor i picked up for a rebuild and stroking. it too had a bent rod.

good luck

Major bummer. Wish I could help you but all I have extra right now are a lot of smallblock Mopar parts. Think a 340'd fit in there ? Can you get high octane where you are ?

Re: Dammit! Bent Rod.

I got the rod covered. PAW sold me one for $15 $25 delivered. Now I'll have to have the piston removed and reinstalled on the new rod. I hope it doesn't cost too much. Unexpected expenses are always part of the game. The cylinder looks fine thank God.

Re: Dammit! Bent Rod.

That's good news Norm

Are the rings cracked ? On some of the cheaper pistons I've built motors with the ring lands would get cracks in between them.

If the rings are cracked, inspect the lands for cracks. If the rings ain't cracked, don't remove them as they'll be very brittle and easy to bust by now.
