I'm afraid that my post spread the idea that the motor got outsourced. This had been a hard thread to follow, and at one point Mark had said that the motor had been sent to another guy for assembly (but later said that it came back to Power Marine who did the assembly - or something like that).
I didn't mean to spread misinformation, as that particular post was supposed to be "more" about the piling on and guys getting banned.
We also don't know for sure that the pushrods are used. Mark's pushrod post spoke of them as being used because they failed because of presumed existing worn surfaces. It has recently been pointed out that the pushrods failed because some of the brand-new rockers had defects that caused an oiling problem with the pusrods. We have heard, however, that all of the pushrods have been replaced as well as the rockers.
At least that is what I've been able to figure out by re-reading some of the posts...
