Default That's one way to lower compression..

Wasn't able to see the original block but, it was windowed. Not sure what the guy was doing, (probably hot rodding it) but, broke a valve spring and bent only one push rod.
Truck wasn't making much power, but this did come out of a duce and a half.

Damaged the upper pan and oil cooler.

Very expensive Oops.. Injectors all tested bad, valve train wasn't in good shape either.

Something to add to the wall of carnage..

I somehow bent my pushrod when I put my lb7 back together. Had two calves stamped in my piston. Put another pushrod in, eye checked my pistons. And it’s still going today new owner will be in for a surprise if he tears it apart
