I thought it sounded like a valve issue, but I checked them, and drained the oil.

Definitely a main or rod bearing. Metal in the drain pan.

Bummer. So, do I build another /4 2.2 or my 2.3 /6?

My budget dictates that I do the /4 for now with the /6 in the pipeline, I suppose.

Pulling the motor Wednesday. Crap.

Sorry to hear..... I guess now is the time to pull that 3.8 I hear you have stashed away.
Good luck with your diagnoses.

Now that would piss me off. I guess the bright side is other then throwing $$$ at a unexpected repair you will have a stronger motor behind you.

I don't have any complete motors laying around to send you. But you can swap the main bearings in about 10 hours. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Much faster if it's a rod bearing.

That (IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) is an idea worth doing. I will donate time in your garage to that effort prior to my Seattle trip on Thursday if you can get the parts defined in time. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I have been through a lot since this occurrence, but a rebuilt 2.7 is on the way. This will be my install thread. (I guess)

Way to steer into the skid !
You know sometime things happen for a reason, now you have the excuse to do the 2.7.
Can't wait to see you at WCR with it!

Sorry the engine wore out on you. Sounds like you have your plan set for the new power plant, good luck with the new install!!

Hope you can get back on the road soon, I will be watching your thread and cheering from the sidelines!

Well, with selling off all the great raffle prizes he took home from the 2015 WCR, is it any surprise that he could afford to purchase a freshly built 2.7L motor? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

Your not alone. All 914 owners will be "put to the test" at one time or another. Some walk away while others put there best foot forward. This is congruent with your signature. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif) "S" cams?

I don't understand why this would piss anyone off. Its a mechanical device. It will wear out. It will break. Not if, but when. Its part of owning and driving a car. If I blew up an engine cause I did something stupid like ignoring low oil on the dipstick, or exceeding 7000 rpm, now that would piss me off. Losing a bearing on a worn out engine is to be expected
