Things did end poorly last night. Oiling issue had been remidied with winter freshening. Never held less than 70 psi at rpm this year.

It did. Not sure on extent of damage but #8 rod is not where it is supposed to be. Neither is the coolant or the oil.

I do not off hand.

Had oil pressure issues last season but never any failure, all wear surfaces actually looked pretty good.

I'll try to round up that balance info

since you need to do a new rotating assembly, I'd work on getting that bob weight down.

This area is somewhat greek to me, but you mean lighter piston/rod combo, correct?

Yes including the crank shaft, with the way you guys are spinning the bejeezus out of these things it can't hurt to have a lighter assembly at the RPM.

I'm not normally an aluminum rod guy, but id consider using longer aluminum rods and pistons with a much shorter pin height, Light pins and pistons with some higher end options.

8500-9000 for 30 seconds is a lot to ask out of eagle rods and heavy pistons.

I started with Eagle H-beams and went with Oliver billet after having a rod failure at 7500. The 468 in my puller regularily buzzed 8600 with the Oliver's and would go over 9000 when I put the cut bar tires on. Never had a failure and the motor is still going strong today. I must add though that no expense was spared on the motor. You have to have superior parts, machining and an engine builder that knows how to make it live at these levels!

Agreed, got to watch the lower end stuff when you start hitting these levels of abuse, the better rods tend to hold their shape and not distort.

Was the 468 on a factory crank, out of curiosity?
