my31buick Posted April 22, 2015 Share Posted April 22, 2015 Going to church Sunday and my 31 started to make noise. I Just spent over 7k totally going thru this engine. fresh babbiting. rocker assy. rebuilt. cam bearings. This thing sounded awesome. Till now. It started knocking. Towed her home and pulled the pan. No. 7 Rod bearing beat out. I had 40 lbs oil press. at all times. even after knock. Is it possible That connecting rod nuts were torqued way too tight? I ask because they seemed extremely tight when I loosened them. I need help guys. Incompetent engine shops are killing me. Im seriously depressed about this and I thought I spent the extra time and $ to make this a dependable driver. Almost want to give up on it.
