I haven't covered much of what i've done in the last year, but the engine skipped time, so i rebuilt the head and changed some seals in the pump and had it running for about a month then i was driving it very spiritedly and had a bit of a run away, it shut down pretty quickly but the damage was done. I had known the bottom end was a bit worn making this a possibility, but i decided to run 30psi anyway so this is the result haha. I need to take a break from it now and finish some other projects before i come back to this and either go to over sized pistons or swap to an ahu engine i have.

i am just hoping the head is ok, i haven't removed it yet, but i did a compression test and the results were 0-220-150-220 so i know something is definitely very bad.  I used an endoscope camera to view inside and the pistons look ok so thats a decent sign.
