The egine blew up after a year has a 3.slow in it.Was working 12 hour shifts and didnt have time to rebuild the bottom end.So I had the machine shop that done all the machine work to build the bottom end.When I put it all back together it made it about 5 miles and started knocking.They wouldn't stand behind their work.They said it was my fault for using silicone on the oil pump.After I tore it done to try and save some thing so I could have a car to drive.Come to find out they put the thurst bearings in backwards.To make a long story short i ditched the 3.slow.

I pulled parts at an old friends junkyard for a few months.He had a 84 pick-up with a bad frame.I sold the trans out of it and after I pulled it he said I'm taking it to the crusher.So I went back to the garage and got the torches and cut the front end out.I took it home to.
I have 5 of them now.
It was my sons job to tear it down.He did alright but I had to finish it.
