Who is the worst mechanic you ever saw or dealt with.............. I used to think it was me back when I was 16 years old, but today I think someone took my title and it wasn't even close. I decided it would be nice to pick up a 350 core to save for someday. Perused the local Facebook Marketplace and found a likely candidate. Sent the guy an offer. Then I saw another one that had an aluminum intake with it. So I shot him an offer too. Both guys accepted. First guy was moving and wanted to unload it. Fairly knowledgeable guy with a neat 51 Chevy coupe he was driving while modifying. Already had a 350 in it. Second guy was much younger. Worked as a mechanic (* don't know what else to call him) at a tool rental place. Very nice guy. He explained that the block had new cam bearings he had installed, honed the cylinders, new rings and bearings (I think) and one new (used ?) piston. Anyway he was pressing a pin into the rod/piston and managed to ruin the piston, so he got frustarated and decide to scrap the project. Now I'm not complaining cause I got everything for $200 and I figure the aluminum Weiand intake is probably worth a hundred. The thing that amazed me was the complete lack of effort to build the engine in a manner that would even give a marginal chance for it to survive for 5 minutes......... Below are the photographic details. And we wonder why camshafts fail........ Does anyone know what this stands for?
