gotta keep in mind that the chinese rods are copies of the high end rods, so I would not be surprised if they look similar. I'll post up pictures of mine in a little while

I got in touch with Arrow and apparently these are Callies Ultra H beams.
I didn't need the Dyer I beams since I'm not running boost or a ton of torque/hp

Called milodon and the guy says 3-4 more weeks for the pickup. I'm calling summit to cancel my order. I'll make the durango pickup work. F_U milodon.

Man that really sucks! I was hoping that my calling in for the pick-up would also get yours made as they said that a few others would get plated?
A custom pick should not be too hard to weld up

Just before you shook their tree, Rylis, they had sent me an e-mail saying I was looking at mid-March. Then a couple days later, I got shipping confirmation. I was hoping everyone who was waiting was gonna be taken care of...

I called summit and cancelled my order. The guy I talked to at Milodon made me feel less than confident that anything would be done soon.

I dropped my parts off at the machine shop, they said the crank should be ok. Depending on the timing, I might have them put the short block together. turnaround looks like 2 weeks. that leaves me 3 weeks to get it together, put it in the car, finish the wiring, tune and head down south. Sure! no problem!

Spring Fling is starting to look iffy.....

I ended up going to Rex Hutchison in Sac on recommendation of friends. I'll get in touch with you about the oil pan. Thanks Jason

And because I don't have enough stuff to do, I found one of my rocker shafts is bent (maybe that is why there were bearing issues) and I need to replace the pump on my transmission because the gear ate the stator support. Good times!
At least a new rocker shaft, with rockers is $89 from the dealer - quite reasonable...

You think your bellhousing could've been off of index? Seems odd it ate itself that quick.

The pump gear ate into the stator support face, like there was a thrust issue or not enough clearance. There was some damage to the converter too that I have to have fixed. I thought I had enough clearance, but maybe not or maybe I ballooned the converter - which would be weird since the 440 that was in front of it didn't make a huge amount of power. The front pump bushing actually looked pretty good so the converter to pump drive tube concentricity was close. At least with the small block case, I don't have to deal with centering the bellhousing on the front pump bore like you have to do with the JW ultrabell. Got the pump today, so I am hoping to get the trans air checked and buttoned up tonight.

I got ya, my head was thinking drum bushings, not thrust washers.

I've got the transmission back together and everything checks good. Converter isn't back yet. Engine is still in progress at the machine shop.

Hey just a heads up,
I pulled my radiator yesterday and when I checked the zinc anode it was all ate to crap. I had last checked that thing about 2 years ago and it was still in good condition. My radiator still works fine no leaks so I didn't think the galvanic corrosion would be that bad. I was amazed to find the anode to basically crumble in my hands. With this new motor I went and got a new aluminum radiator and will replace my hoses with some Gates green stripe hoses,
http://www.gates.com/products/automotive...ly-coolant-hose
replaced the steel water neck with an aluminum piece,

and will put in another sacrificial zinc anode. Also going to use some aluminum engine specific coolant and flush more often.

Use the Chrysler orange HOAT coolant. Lasts a long time and it's what the new Hemi's are tested and born with.

Picked up my parts from the machine shop yesterday. I'm now the proud owner of a torque plate. Really messed up my budget but I didn't have a choice. So today I went to start assembling the short block. I was just going to throw the crank in there are run it but thought better of that and set up the dial indicator, lay in the crank and check it for straightness. Done for the day, crank is bent about .0035". Not sure what that is about. Since they had to send the crank out to get ground and I did not have them assemble it, I can't blame the machine shop I guess. I could straighten it myself, but that would require me to build some V blocks - besides I just spent some money to have it worked on. Since I paid someone to grind the thing, I'll talk to the machine shop on Monday and have them straighten it. Disappointed that the place that ground the crank either didn't straighten it or it bounced around in the truck on the way back to the machine shop.

Wow,if you didn't have bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all!
