Did you try to manually rotating the crank by hand to see if it will cycle freely?

yes, and it wont. 90% sure I have a bent rod or rod's.

I am looking for a new longblock, but I am also bidding on a house, and if that falls through I will be moving back to Northern California, and my funds are tied up in too many things to spend more on this car if it ends up being costly...



not to mention I still dont know why the injectors hydrolocked the car...

Oh boy! you were doing so well too! If you need to borrow a cherry picker, I left mine with my brother in Ontario. Let me know, a car like that should not be parked in garage.

Just got my first day off. so I started working on the car. No i did not get to see it flash, but maybe the bulb i was using was to big, it was a old brake light bulb....next time I will use a LED, but when I test the injectors they do fire.

well I plugged the CAS and the injector clips on, held the injectors out and turned the car to on (mind you the head is off the car). Then I turned the CAS, the first turn, it would fire all the injectors or sometimes two at the same time? is this normal? after the first turn if I kept turning it it would fire in the correct order one at a time with a good spray pattern and no leaks at all....



I am still confused how it leaked in the first place. The intake manifold was full of fuel, pulled the head, and the block out, drained the oil, and I am pulling the pan in the morning and looking at the bearings and the rods etc.
