    LLY - Cracked piston

    If you're positive the cap / bearings are square to the crank, probably not. But I would

    LLY - Cracked piston

    Imagine that, GM tells you to measure it like every other mfg.

    LLY - Cracked piston

    Yea that sounds like a great idea... Let's just change the measurement location until we get the numbers we like! Probably why it's not in any service manuals to do so

    LLY - Cracked piston

    My career consisted of mainly inline engines, but we never rocked the pistons back and forth in the bore. Yes the pistons will "grow" a touch from higher temps, but with the short distance of the compression height it's a non issue IMO If you're worried about getting it too close, by all means...

    Holy harmonic balancer Batman!

    Not as bad as you'd think! Head is only $170 ish. I can make you a helluva deal on one used

    Why's everyone have a short 3/4" ratchet? My snappy has a 4ft handle

    02' LB7 Tow Pig Build

    I was thinking the LMM jumped up to an 8 hole nozzle

    Another Broken Crank

    Funny you should say that. It's either a love or hate relationship with KB, I'm not on the hate side personally

    Is changing the pump gear size really feasible at this point? You'd have to mount the pump further up correct?

    Another Broken Crank

    Speaking of pistons, anyone have experience with the KB replacements for the Duramax? They have 16.8:1, 17.5:1, and stock compression height or -.010". Doesn't look like they have a "delipped" bowl as the Mahle, but they're cheaper than stock LB7s, and retain the pin offset

    Another Broken Crank

    Yea don't think that we will be mad at you. Hell I've been dreaming of doing a budget bottom end for 8 years! But then you add up all the other stuff to put it to good use, and priorities change...

    Harsh downshifting

    When I first read Mike's post I thought he was trolling these guys

    That pump did everything but remove itself from the engine

    I may have missed it, but what did Exergy say about the first one?

    LLY - Cracked piston

    How hard do you want to push it? And how many miles are you going to drive it? I wouldn't be scared to put it together with that piston clearance and ring gap on the high side unless it was a stock rebuild. Usually .0045" per bore inch is fine (top ring)
