Once upon a time when I was 15, I did an overhaul in the trunk a a 64 chevy. I short blocked the car's motor for my good buddy after school ,, didnt have a garage.. when it came time to put motor in and get it running,, It was turning over was a little tight? so we pulled car out to street and towed it to get it to turn over. upon releasing clutch,, rear wheels locked up and car went sideways in rear. Still little tight. So we pulled motor to check out. We found that #5 & 6 rod were in backwards , in other words, know those little rod cap tabs on each side that are supposed to go against crank radi? well they were hitting each other and finally locked. So thats my worry here,, From then on I started staying at Holiday Inns... Sleep tight. Maybe this should be in the Bench Racing Thread?
