Personally I think there is another problem at hand. It is not hard to put in a shortblock and a seasoned technician can install those with ease. Hell the pistons and everything come installed already. I think there is something else going on causing the failure. I mean seriously 1 piston gone, they replaced the piston, it goes, then it is replaced with a shortblock and that goes south. Something else is causing the issue.
lol I was about to say that, but i figured he was wondering the general area for the intake and exhaust valves. But that is what i was getting at with Moore, but all they were telling me they would do is put another short block in and call it a day, not troubleshoot what caused it, they would just chock it up to a random block made from marshmallows or something....
