Thanks, Lee. That is pretty much what I thought I had but when I had the motor out and found the cam and lifters I thought that was it and like a dumb#&*#&* didn't keep digging and put motor back in. Never knocked during cam break-in and sounded good but by the next day-well you know the story. Think I'm gonna pull it again as I tried to check the bearings by just dropping pan, got a little uncomfortable. Has been knocking long enough that it might have got to crank, not sure which rod it is, eithier. So might have to put new crank in, can get recon one for 82.00-40$core. Looks like another fun weekend as I have to have truck mon. Morn for work.
YEE-HAW! :Twisted: Okay, all is sais and DONE on this problem- we can delete this now, somehow I can't seem to manage it this time so if a moderator wishes to go ahead and get rid of it. Oh, btw-Lee thanks for confirmation, nailed it and put melling high volume pump in and are running 65 lbs. At start-up and 25-30 lbs. At hot idle, better than I have since rebuild 2 years ago, thanks again and catch you around the site later :twisted:
