I know about driving less but the current engine is not slated for fixing. And the more I drive it (more time I have to properly address the "new" donor motor).
I will hopefully figure out if it is rings or valves today and get some pictures of the bottom end and post em.
Thankyou for confirming the pump info. That is great news for me
Watched a vid on the rockers. Looks like I would have to wait until later down the road, maybe on the next IP install. Given the power the donor truck seemed to have it was plenty enough for me, power wise it would be great to see if I could get a chip tuned to what the donor was tuned to stock.
