I pulled the oil pan off of Chris's (ndkid275). The engine picture is as found. The other is a picture of everything I found in the oil pan.

OUCH! That looks like maybe a rod bolt got overtorqued and partially stripped the last time the engine was assembled. Was there any damage to the block?

I guess that explains the wonderful sound that I heard! FYI, I never opened the block when I bought it. I drove about 500 miles with it before attempting to drive to Winchester when she went boom!

By the way, it’s funny to see this post as I am completing final assembly of my 261 and installing it in a few weeks!

When we were younger, mocking someone's engine even in jest, meant a race was imminent.

Looks sharp. How did you paint the Chevrolet script in the valve cover?
