    Background:
    Purchased it as a non runner with an unknown problem. Managed to get it to run but was not drivable. Decided on a complete strip down to see how the block looked and encountered major damage, B/S bearing let loose and chewed up the block as well as caused issues with the other bearings. Sent to a machinist to bore the cylinders and install a few minor parts as well as had the crank turned.

    In the process of swapping my engine into a 95 AWD shell. Hoping to have it up and running by mid to late summer.

    I'm a simple man; I see a Talon, I like!

    Sucks about the balance shaft doing all that carnage but it looks like it's in good hands now so good luck with the build onwards! Would like to see some full car pics if possible :talon: :hellyeah:

      I'm actually in the process of transferring everything into an AWD shell. Eventually I shall get more pictures uploaded :)

    I did a teardown on a customer's motor that had a similar problem as that. They caught the B/S bearing while installing the oil pump and pushed it right out. Destroyed everything on a fresh build...

      After some debate I decided I would rather have the "possible issues" from doing a delete versus the potential to implode my engine by replacing the b/s. One to many "uh-ohs" in replacing them.

      I agree. I usually do the race shafts that are neutrally balanced rather than the deletes, but it depends on what the owner wants. I've found that when I do a delete on a 7-bolt, the oil pressure difference is great on half the motor, but the other half isn't getting what I consider enough. 6 bolts aren't as bad, but the oil galleys are completely different after the balance shaft bearings.

      The bearings went on smooth and without a hitch. Tomorrow the engine will be dropped in and within a few short weeks immediately get to fire it up and drive.
