Engines are metal too ...

Looks like my near future metalworking is going to be building a
motor for my truck . My son had it down in Memphis , an oil pressure
sensor failed and it dumped all the oil , resulting in near-seizure and
cylinder wall damage . It made it almost all the way home before it blew
... sounds like a piston blew it's top , but I won't know for sure until
the heads are off . The scored cylinders I'm certain of , the bore scope
shows that pretty clearly in the 5 cylinders I looked at .
Ah what the hell , I've been wanting to build that motor - GM 305 "H"
- so it's getting a stage 3 cam , headers , an aluminum intake (from a
friend , he's not sure but I remember seeing an Edelbrock Torker in his
piles of "stuff") and probably a bump from 8.3:1 to 9:1 compression .
That along with changing out the current 2.73:1 rear axle gears for a
set of 3.42's should really wake the old girl up !
Let's Go Brandon !
