Some of you might remember that I had an issue with a newly rebuilt engine at the beginning of the summer. I pulled it twice, went through it with two different engine guys (including the original builder) and never came up with a solution for the knock it developed. Everything looked good. It was driving me nuts.

I had my spare engine sitting on a stand, and that although not most economical decision, decided to have it gone through and brought back up to snuff. New babbitt, crank was replaced (found a crack in the old one), 0.020 over. Valves were done and the head and block were trued up. Transmission was gone through and was found to be in remarkably good shape.

I now have it put back in the truck, and it runs amazing. I was going to do it over the winter, but I had some free time yesterday,so went at it and got it installed. No strange noises, squeals, rattles or knocks. I am now a happy camper. On a positive note, when I get the other motor figured out, I will be building a speedster with my son. I already have the frame, axles, etc. :-) Here is a video of the new engine:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s61VUSZnJ1Q&feature=youtu.be
