    Re: Big Motor, Little Truck. The BBR... aka "Tooth and Nail"

    Re: Big Motor, Little Truck. The BBR is broke

    It's completely apart.

    The good: The crank looks perfect as does the rod.

    The bad: Needs a new piston - cracked, rod bearings (cyl 4 and 8 ), and rod bolts.

    The ugly: Bent rod bolts on #4. Don't ask me how that happened.

    Popped the pan & #4 rod bolts were loose & bent, bearing half turned. I can't imagine forgetting to torque a rod cap, but stranger things have happened when I start using tools. Rod seems to check out fine though. I was glad the crank was not damaged. w00t Everything else looks great in there. No metal made it to the oil pump so that makes me very happy.

    Next. Haul the block to Tulia for a sleeve. Then slam this dang thing back together.

            Parts are ordered and block is at the machine shop.

            Who says BBF's are heavy?



            pfft. Just reach over, grab it and toss it in the back of the Durango.

                Re: Big Motor, Little Truck. The BBR is broke

                Light LOL It weighs more than me.

                Just picked up the block and rod. Both look outstanding. ;D ;D ;D ;D

                I went ahead and had them check the rod and it was slightly egg shaped. He resized it and we are good to go.

                Oh yeah, sleeve ran me $125 and the resize was $25. Turnaround time was super fast.

                Whoo Hoo!

                        looks great, you can almost not see the sleeve is there at all!

                        what's with the funny looking color of the block in the lifter valley?

                        the roller rockers look great -- have you had much success setting the lash cold, or do you always have to go back and tweak it hot?

                        Keep us posted!

                          The color is flash rust from me cleaning the block in the driveway with soap and water. No biggie.

                          I have only set them cold. Motor hasn't run long enough to know!

                          More good news: Just picked up my piston rings and the UPS guy just dropped off my new piston!

                          ;D

                                How do you eat an elephant?

                                one bite at a time!


                                Keep at it, I can't wait to see more progress pictures!

                                You should probably compare the weight and dimensions of the new piston compared to the other 7 to make sure it's a good match for the set... you can't be too carefull.

                                Yea - Burn outs!
