That sucks. Hope it's not to bad. I'm still waiting to get mine back after it dropped a valve last year.

Finally got a chance to pull the oil pan off my motor NOT GOOD. The oil pump pick up broke off about an inch from the pump how it had any oil pressure I have no idea. Lots of. Bearing material in the pan I haven't pulled a cap yet but by the stuff in the pan I would say the crank will need turning. The fact that it did not put a rod thru the block amazes me.

Unfortunately, I have seen a good many of those 'bolt on' pickups do that. I tack mine in place like the old days, even when I use them as a result...

I always have tacked them on but this was the first bolt on pick up I have used. The instructions said not to but I will from now on.

What do you guys think should I open up the wallet and go back solid roller or stick with a solid flat tapped. I would like to run 6.90- 7.00 1/8 mi range. I have good heads a 12.6 to compression the motor never ran what I felt it should. I have been going back and forth on this I am driving my wife crazy trying to decide.

Kinda hard to see crank surface....hope she's alright....lost a block and crank due to spun bearing due to a past owner using Teflon tape to install a oil pressure sending unit....oil hole plugged with tape in block.
