What a bummer. I don't blame you for taking a break, you've been thrashing on it like a madman.

I will still be there, probably drive the vette up. I'm not to concerned about it, I've just put in alot of work and am kinda burnt out on working on cars. On the positive side everything is done and proven to work, so swapping out a short block will be the best approach

Good luck dude! Nice to see that it was finally running and driving, if only shortly. Sorry to hear about that cam bearing. Looks like the hard work is done though. Remember to use gallons of Permatex on reassembly.

One thing I did notice that was odd was that on the number 1 cylinder the top and bottom rings were lined. That could be why the oil was getting diluted with fuel. So in the long run, I'm glad I tore the engine down. I should have done that from the beginning

so much for my old mindset of "if the junker breaks, just buy another junker"...lots of LSx swaps just talk through it exactly like that and it's easy to get hung up thinking that's okay. Your experience has shifted that for me, seeing that deadlines can be missed (but not for a madman like you who thrashes like a boss) and general fun can be delayed. Easier to tear-down from the beginning and feel more sure of it all. In that way, I thank you for sharing your misfortune with us, though I'm sorry it turned out that way.

Yep! It's been a learning experience for sure. Luckily the block is fine. Cam bearings are in and total out the door for the repair is about 100 bucks and a day's worth of time. I don't mind at all!

Got the engine block back this morning after I a little delay because I ordered the wrong cam bearings. I forgot the damn pickup tube at work otherwise it would have been in the car.



There are the two super roached cam bearings. Luckily my cam is okay.
