Well, I already talked to him about it and he is ordering all the parts again and getting new pistons this go around so he can bore it .030 over this time. We is thinking that maybe the pistons were egged or something and letting oil through... ? Is this a possibility?? Weird thing is that I know he does good work, he had just finished my brothers 258 rebuild a while back. And it went smooth as could be!

Is this the same mechanic that said, "you just need to put some miles on it and the smoke will clear up?" He may be a friend, but....yikes!

A while back, a local news station did a piece in which they took a car, with a known problem, to 10 different mechanics. Only one of them gave the correct diagnosis, the rest lied and fabricated problems for a larger bill.

I don't trust mechanics.

Kinda weird he would be so quick to tear it down, have it bored and go through all the work again. If I was rebuilding an engine for someone and something went wrong, my first thought wouldn't be to completely re do it. It would to try to find the problem.....unless.....you already knew the problem.
