Belvidere Illinois Mopar Car Show. Keith and Lou met up early Saturday morning to shoot this small informational video about Jason Dumonts 69 GTX
First start up
After running the engine and trying a few different things it was decided to tear the engine down and find the problem. The #1 Rod bearing was scored and the crank shaft looks like it was never turned to a proper size and there is some kind of damage on almost every journal. I have never seen a crank that can be lifted up and down while torqued down.
This is a engine test stand built for the purpose of testing engines before the trouble of painting and detailing is made. This is a fresh rebuild from another shop in some state around here . We test fired it and its never had good oil pressure even after changing the oil pump twice and replacing and test fitting the oil pick up tube. Looks like a tear down is in the future.
