Had a mysterious oil pressure loss, changed the pump (didn't fix it), developed a loud tick, found the rockers were slinging off and lifters had collapsed, and the cam bearings are shot. Add in the trans slip and it's a lovely mess. The shop that originally done the work (in Sept 2010) even remembered the build, guy called it a total nightmare...I now see why lmao

I understand that lol well need to get one running rod run was a blast this past fall i'm sure the spring will be no let down... Plus a group of us there would make it even better may plan a ride for one day hit the dragon and end up back at rod run without back tracking somehow lol
