A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Rome wasn't built in a day. Shit happens to all of us. Pick away when you want.  :cheers:

Based on the bearing wear, it appears that one of the rods were not concentric on the bottom. I'll keep you guys posted. Thanks so much for the support. Since the engine is back out I'm going to address other issues. Specifically front suspension since it needs to be done anyway.

Did the machine shop resize the rods before you put them back in?

The springs are usually easier to change with the engine in the car if you don't have a spring compressor--in my experience, anyway
