So did the full break down on the bottom end....and I finally figured out what locked up the engine..
It's a piece of metal from the piston rods and it got wedged between the weight on the crankshaft and the block itself...
Here's the two broken rods
You can see the bent rod in this pic
The crank looks good, and all the bearing surfaces look great so I think I'm in good shape.
The cylinders all look good other than the muck and surface rust that collected in the top of the cylinders..
So I think I'm good on rebuilding this one, I'm looking into some shops here in town that can do the machine work for me here in Owensboro. I'm hoping to be able to take the block, crank, and heads to a shop next week and get them refreshed and ready for the rebuild..I'll also hopefully start ordering all the parts, lift kit etc next week as well...
What tire pressure sensors do I need to buy for my wk? How do I know which ones I need?

Someone tell me what muffler to order....I'm so undecided, so I'm leaving this decision in your hands...yes I'm putting headers on the engine...so pick me out something that flows well...
