    Oh so true..
    This was from a freshly "rebuilt 289". I figure the price of an oil pan gasket was worth it to see how good of a rebuild it was, before dropping it in.

      That makes sense. I was thinking it was some local colloquialism. Thanks.

          Yes, extreme contamination that scored the rod bearing. There were several others like that, including two of the mains..

          Again, this was supposed to be a "professional" rebuilt engine.
