both out of the same engine (not mine). not sure what happened first but it lost a rocker button and the pushrod made its way down to the crank and ceased the engine up tight.

I have seen some "liquid rebuild" or "rebuild in a can" products. You might give them a try. Its supposed to make the metal real slippery.

:thumbsup: You guys are trying to make me feel good I guess. I am about to see the carnage from the trans behind a 6.5. All of my carnage still ran although they only hit on 6-7 of 8. Makes me feel like South Park. OMG Warwagon killed another 6.5!

This was the first one I killed. Was due to a bad fan clutch and a radiator cap that was defective. It sucked the radiator hoses flat after cool down. The damage was when it let go suddenly under high ECT and shock cooled the cylinder. It went 7K after the damage occurred.

Oil cooler painted trailer.

Replacement truck that used most of the parts from above. Engine smoked like it was on fire from blowby and leaked oil out the front seal badly. The driveway was waterproof from diesel oil. Engine was pulled after a summer of towing. Block turned out to have a head bolt crack.

Then I had some cheap injectors causing hard starting on the 1993.

Replaced the IP. No improvement so sent an injector out to be tested. The return line worm clamp off the IP dropped into an intake port. Noticed it a week later. Pulled the engine to change the injectors, heads, and pistons. It bent valves.
