      hi guys:
      just joined the group. i got this link from the mts board. i am
      listed on that board as mario. my ride is a 56 gmc 1/2 ton pickup.
      started it in 1992. finished it in 1998, weekends only. 1970 eldo
      motor was rebuilt stock except for the eddy intake. homebuilt full
      length headers. the front end is a jim meyer front, mid 70's
      chevelle. the rear is a 1985 vette, 3.07:1. in 99 #8 piston decided
      to redesign itself so i had ross make up new 9.5:1. and rebuilt it
      again. presently i am hearing a weird sound coming from the odd
      firing bank. some mechanics have said it sounds like a wristpin. i
      have already changed the lifters and installed a custom shaft from
      al. but to no avail. the oil pressure is 50 lbs on startup then
      settles down to 35-40 at idle. the engine pulls good vacuum with no
      needle fluctuation. it rises steadily on acceleration and drops on
      deceleration. this month will tell the tale as i will be pulling it
      to look inside.
      ciao,
      mario
