after following along with that buildup Jim, it would be sad to find out bad news with it.

I got the engine out and partially apart over the weekend. I will have to have it checked to see the actual status, but at least there was no carnage inside.

omt,
did your main studs/bolts twist out easily once loose? did you notice any lip or ridge with your fingernail on the block webbing where the cap edge was?

I did not notice anything unusual, but it will get closer scrutiny when it is taken apart. All of the studs seemed to be OK, and all of the threads appeared to be OK. Within a few weeks it will get tested for hardness and cracks.

The block has still not been tested, but everything looked OK when it was disassembled on Saturday (12/2). The only anomaly detected so far is that the front studs did not want to come out. It was taking so much force to turn them that there was a fear they would snap. These are the studs that the front cover goes over when you install it. More to come.

Good, so far let's keep our fingers cross.
