Looks to me that the carburetor was sucked into the intake manifold. Probably rattling around in there.

I still think you should'a just raced it to find out for sure. But I'll go with #1 rod bearing in the corner pocket.

Patrick needs to be more specific then, I guess... and I think Jeff probably needs to quit his day job and go on the road. He's killing us with his comedy these days.

Motor coming out

JH, oil and antifreeze on the driveway? Sounds like you didn't expect that. Everytime I pull the engine, (and it's been several times on this ca), I just open all the valves and ports and let it run out in the garage. Quicker that way, just get it over with, it will end up there anyway. Kidding, but it sure seems that way.

I don't know if you call this bad or not good and when I removed the caps the bearings fell out. I call that collapsed...it also has cast pistons not forged like mustangs have. I think I was duped by the ford motorsport guy down south when I got this crate short block...thieves wharhouse comes to mind..jh

Those are wiped - no doubt. And they should not have fallen out on their own.

You should mic the crank and pistons, check the ridge - etc, hone, re-ring, regasket, rebearing - and call 'er done. You may get away with an "overhaul" as opposed to a rebuild.

The motor is in the hot tank, and then it will be align honed,square decked & serfaced, bored, balanced and assembled 331cu.in. all for 1500. out the back door. this should last longer than the 14000 miles I got out of a FORD crate motor...jh
