Get Quality Parts When Rebuilding

When the engine was all back in the vehicle and oil was poured in it, we cranked it up. There was a very slight tick and I asked what it was. Having had to remove all the baffles from the valve covers so we could get clearance for the super gold valve rockers no one knew. The local mechanic hoped it would go away. The tick slowly got a little louder. On the way back from a trip up to Missouri, (I live in the middle of Texas.) it all of a sudden turned into a KLANK. I had to come home anyway so I kept on driving, being sure to check the oil. In time it has turned into a clatter. I have continued to run it remembering the HP rating on the "I" beam rods which is "about" twice what mine is. I consider the ARP fasteners as an insurance package. Using electronic testing we have found out something is wrong with #5 cylinder. The parts are of good quality. Something happened in the rebuild shop because the others are "perfect" in running. I cut the wire for the fuel injector to remove the knocking. DO NOT DO THAT! The computer reduces power to nothing and is dangerous. YES I have reconnected it. These rods are very strong and are keeping my engine together. David A. Williamson (17 Dec 2020, 09:18)
