Hello all. I have what should be a very basic question to ask. I just bought a pair 1967 marine 327 motors. One of these underwent $1200 in work at a shop before it was stored for the last 16 years next to its twin. I took off the heads and found new trw.030 flat tops in the cyls. I pulled the 10 quart cast iron oil pan and found a forged steel crank.Then I was looking at the rods and they look to me like they are installed wrong. I thought that the thicker part of the big end always faced outside towards the crank, and the thinner side went against the other rod. These are all installed with the thicker parts touching eachother. also the #2 rod has a #8 cap on it, all the others are not marked, but it looks to me as thou the rods were resized so I'm not sure that that makes a difference. I took off one of the caps and found what looks like an oil spurt groove and hole machined into it but the bearing does not have the cut out notch in it to let oil get to it. I may be nuts, but I dont think something is rite with this. I will post some pictures if I can figure out your posting protocall.
