Ed,As to the cause of my # 2 cylinder rod problem a few posts ago......I think I may have a smoking gun...It seems that someone had put 4 washers on the oil pressure relief spring ........Does this indicate that there was a pre existing oil pressure problem. that someone was treating ?If so I have a beef with the shop that sold me the car as I had pointed out the low oil pressure reading and was assured that they tested it and the oil pressure was fine, that it was a gauge issue....As you had mentioned the # 2 cylinder is the one that is prone to go in a low oil pressure situation ( along with the # 5 )do I have a legitimate beef here ??thanks,Dennis
