Re: The New Engine is Alive
I's sorry Caver Dave. There is a post that in my earlier thread that said the new dip stick was hitting the crank shaft counter weight. I visually inspected all of the connecting to look for a spun bearing. I did not remove the caps, just eyed them. I raised the oil pan last night and it ran without the noise.
I'm extremely confident that those oil galley plugs are in the rear of the block. After the block came back from the machine shop, I washed it twice and cleaned all of the bores. I then mounted it in my engine stand. The next step was to take it off the stand so I could put the plugs in rear of the block. I couldn't reach them with the engine on the stand.
