So after the fiasco of the car landing on the sump, I pulled the engine and box. While I had the sump off I though I'd check the big end as the oil pressure had dropped to 30 psi at idle when hot while breaking in the cam. It looks like it's had some debris go through them. Cranks not scored but does need a polish.
I'm undecided as to whether to rebuild it completely or just reshell it on the assumption any **** is either in the bearing or filter. I think I'll be rebuilding it as the one of the mains isn't great at the cap join and if it's gone through the big end and mains, then odds are it's all gone through cam bearings as well.
WB54 – Sorry to hear you have more engine work to do after your car was hit on the driveway.
Hope your luck improves for the rest of the build, Paul.
