Bob Kazmierski replaced the timing gear in his pick-up but the noise persisted. After further inspection it turned out to be bad rod and main bearings. He has a spare engine that hell put in temporarily while he researches engine-rebuilding options for the original engine. If anyone knows a good engine rebuilder, give Bob a call. He thinking about insert bearings vs. babbitt.
