      If you are talking about the pic of the rod#1 and the bearing surface being scarred, i forgot to mark that one, and have it reoriented properly, the bearing tangs are on the same not oposing sides right?

      Correct, same sides. I was just making sure. If it wasn't, it would cause some problems though.

      Crank no, rod has major dark discoloration, almost like it got so hot when there was literally no rod bearing on either side of rod#1.

      Rod may have ran like that for roughly 70 miles.

      I really cannot afford new rods, but it looks like I may have to hit up I.E.

      those were Scat H-beam rods from BBM.

      Can't I have the crank journal cleaned up, or whole crank reground?

      Have a spare OBD1 Block in the basement, may steal the crank from that.

      Wish I could send the rods to Scat and hope they can take care of me, maybe just sell me one rod.

      Pistons are mint...

      New pump, pan, gaskets, and oil pressure gauge, and oil temp gauge going in, kicking myself for not sorting that after my inital ABA Swap, but never grabbed the sending units of the JH, to work with the cabby triple gauge setup...

      Any thoughts on the Dark Coloration on Rod#1???

      do not use the crank or rod. get another crank thats good and get a new rod that matches the others.
      if you reuse that rod. it will NOT last.

      Understood, Yes sir!

      Got this covered, BBM can source me one rod from SCAT just need the big end and small end weights, so they can match the rods I bought OG.

      Got my water hardlines mounted. Ended up running both on the passenger side....

      Not pretty but it will work, a tip for any mark one owners, along the pinch weld on the rockers are two or more slots, that a standard U- bracket will fit into perfectly.

      This allows you to only drill one hole per bracket instead of two two mount the bracket that holds the hardlines to the backside of the rocker.

      The hardlines can be had in 8 foot sections @ Home Depot for 6.00 a line.

      Will run braided PVC tubing from McMaster Carr for the rest of the plumbing!.

      Pics of the plumbing from resevoir to hardlines tomorrow.

      What's the thought on the "catch can" orientation like that? Seems like it will never fill, just backwash into the crank case.

      Hahaha, I was rushing to go out the door to work, obviously it will be flipped, I may have been a bit "sleepy". Was rushing to throw the whole engine back together w/out internals for the pic.

      I am not a dumbass, a better question is where should I have Nub tap the Valve cover for the top feed to the can?

      No thought at all, I was just rushing, to get this mocked up, and slapped the can on the coolant flange without thinking.

      Well if you are rushing then you must be doing it right. Carry on.
