    Short and sweet-
    you need oil ring spacers with this design piston, not that moving the oil rings up and down in the groove wouldn't have given a clue. Oh, and you don't put orange silicone on the rear main parting halves to make sure the oil passage seals. It tends to plug the hole when you torque it down.
    Making sure that the rocker slots clear the studs helps too, but I knew that was not checked when I installed the roller rockers.

    Did you find anything definitive causing the crankcase pressure that was pushing all the oil out? Incl the dipstick? The oil ring issue would cause a bunch consumption one would guess but blow by must be pretty strong with this one?

    Yeah, I'm still confused as to why the high crank pressure was occurring and why the one plug looked like it wasn't firing? As for the oil rings, I recall mark using the supplied parts, including all the rings that came with his kit...was the lack of spacers with these pistons an oversight on the kit supplier?

    So is anybody trying to insinuate something?

    Yep, I helped Mark...because no one else was offering. I didn't pretend to be an expert, only somone who had done it once before...

    Five rod bearings installed backwards, grinding on the crank chamfer also.
    To explain the crankcase pressure issues-
    when the top ring (compression) and the second ring (scraper) are overwhelmed with oil, they cannot seat. Then add that the rings were eventually washed out by over-fueling, that was the dagger.
    Blame can be placed on the guy that put the parts in the kit, but it doesn't explain the lack of "common sense" that the oil ring package flopped around in the ring groove.
    It WILL have a pcv system in it also.
    This engine had a great cam-head combo and made 300 to the rear tires. Something wrong here?!!

    I have done this for a living for over 30 years.
    My customer cars and my personal cars' performance speak for themselves.
    I am human and have made mistakes.
    I DON'T answer everyones automotive questions on internet threads then backpedal when I was clearly wrong or didn't use my head.
    I don't consider myself a regular "know it all".
    And finally, I don't care what you think, because I have experienced first-hand your lack of knowledge- at least in engine assembly.
    You seem to have convinced yourself that because you can look up textbook answers to technical questions, that you can transfer that to your hands and assemble an engine correctly.
    I have always believed that if you give someone enough rope, well......
    unfortunately you are not the only one that got hanged.
