    Hi Kev - no not quite (and thanks for asking) One thing I have learnt is perhaps to listen to my own initial thoughts on what the 'noise' actually was (my first thought was that it was an 'end' despite no loss of oil pressure etc) - unfortunately one speaks with 'others' who perhaps should have far more knowledge and experience than yourself and end up doubting your own thoughts. Have taken it back up to John Sleath for analysis - initially John hopes that a 10 thou' grank grind and possibly a 'rod re-size may do the job - John is going to strip things down for inspection/report to try and find cause - just waiting for 'synopsis' .

    Had a similar noise on my friends Oddfire Buick V6, also turned out to be an end but only worn on thrust side . We ended up running it along the road with an extended doctors stethoscope strapped to it in various places to trace the location. Looks like the cause , as it was totally rebuilt, was a crap oil filter as it blocked the oilpick up with fibrous material.

    Engine is 'done' - just need to collect. Needed new 'rod', '010" crank grind - no clue as to cause - we have a few additional 'ponies' however
