made an expensive rookie mistake. Stretched a piston in my 82 s&s 351pcm. Have a rebuilt motor coming Friday. Wanted to know if anyone out there has done this before?
Anybody have any pointers?
do you all know if my new motor (long block) will come with a new oil pump?

I have an awesome mechanic helping me make the switch but thought i would see if anyone else had some pointers....

also gonna be installing a rev limiter on this one.

thanks in advance

Long block's can vary a little but should come with a new pump and oil pan installed.

It's pretty much like installing a motor in anything else, just take your time and don't short cut it. Follow the break in procedures that come with the motor and change your oil as directed. It's the best thing you can do for a motor.
