Tore this down for a Nieghbor had an in frame done several years ago, is in a 574 hydro on a Chisholm Ryder grape Harvestor frame with a post pounder on it for replacing grape vineyard posts. It spun a rod bearing. When I tore it down all the main bearings where in wrong the halves with NO holes where in the block. Not only was that hard to believe but only had to polish the crank still has STD bearings put back in it

I bet the oil pressure came up really fast and the valves had plenty of oil.

Maybe that's how I can fix my worn/leaking cam bearings in my td7e. Ok, maybe not, but high pressure on the gauge is always a good sign if all is as it's supposed to be

Several years! Wow! My cousin did the same thing on a 383 Chrysler and it went about ten miles!

I had an employee do that on a JD 4020D. It ran just short of twenty hours before the bearings failed. It was over a gallon low on oil when it failed. I wonder how long it would have gone if they had kept it full of oil?

Friends here had that happen with a rebuild on a diesel in a Mitsubishi Pajero diesel.  Worked for a while but then - -.

I can't remember what that one was called in US - we in Oz wern't supposed to know enough Spanish slang.  Could cause consternation if you asked an owner how his pud puller was going though.
