Re: Snyder’s Inserted Rod Size?

There is a lot more to it than just boring out the rod to the insert size. You have to have it in the right location, must be parallel with the wrist pin, rod bolts need to be torqued to the right...

If they can not tell what size they need maybe they should not do the job.

Re: babbit tolerance? .000?

If you use 0 clearance you will never get the engine to turn. If it would it would melt the babbitt, there would be no oil flow. O clearance is BS

Re: motor problems again

If you have inserts you could be having trouble with the rear main not getting enough oil to the rear of the bearing.
The pistons are set to close by a lot of builders, you need .004 on number 3 and...

Re: Title change

Sign your name and date, and any other information some where on the car that only you and one of your love ones know about. Plus try to get the proper paper work.

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

I,m 90% sure it is the rear main. you can check that by dropping the pan and cap. This is not a new problem. You have to leave more clearance on the rear main or put a oil grove in the upper insert.

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

If it was the rings you should have seen marks on the cylinder walls.. Most likely a main bearing was to tight.
