    Just put it back together from checking the rods in the driveway. Pulled the plugs and ran a wire down to check the strokes of each piston due to a noise I heard. Turned out to be the torque converter bolts were to long so I replaced them and turned the engine by hand. The noise went away so I buttoned everything back up fired it hit the pedal twice and the rest is history..

    you either didnt torque them enough...or you put the rod cap on backwards...or it was gonna go anyways...

    either way...it looks like the rod bolt/s gave

    the pic below is of a members ''grinder'' 's 67 dart, he lost a rod in nevada...and drove it home to oceaside with a t shirt and cardboard stuffed over the hole. We he got to my house we pulled the head and found the piston and rod sitting almost at tdc...so it did not hit the crank and lock it up.

    I wonder if thats a common spot. My big bummer is that I had less than 1 hour run time. Oh well live & learn.

    A good friend of mine traded a set of cheap chrome wheels for a 74 slant 6 powered Scamp that had the very same hole in the block, it ran & he drove it home like that. We called it the slant five. lol
