    Nah, I spoke to Robby Abbott today and it's on his list for this week to finish disassembly and assess what's useable.

    Assessment from Robby is that the block and crank are both toast

    It's probably a bit hard to determine now that the crank is out. I'll have to ask Robby or find out which spigot bearing was fitted.

    Not really. Doesn't take long to put a crank back in with a couple of caps

    Some closure for anyone following along. Here's a pic of the installed spigot bearing and block damage.



    My input shaft protrudes past the bellhousing by 3/4" and should have had the smaller diameter bearing or bushing fitted in the next pocket of the crank



    (from http://media.centerforce.com/Inserts/I13GM013.pdf)

    I've now dropped off a replacement LS2 block and crank.

    Rebuilt LS Breathing Like A Steam Train

    So it’s all because the wrong spigot bearing was used? Would it have meant that the bellhousing wouldn’t have sat flush with the block

    yeah but then it would have been a battle of 1/8th of an inch vs. a wild herd of dugga duggas.

    thanks for the update OP, sucks but at least we can learn from your misfortune. good luck with the rebuild!

    Fucking sucks. I thought this is what happened.

    Babs, you can still crank the bolts and pull it in. Same problem wihen a convertor isnt located on auto pump notches

    Nah, the original mechanic screwed a heap of people over and closed up shop about a year ago. When he heard about it smoking he did contact me and offer to remedy, but I'd sooner pay the costs myself to have it done by Abbotts then have him work on it again.

    Not that I deal with them daily, but I've never seen an LS with that bearing in the back. Always bush or needle roller further in.

    That kills, such a simple easy error to make.
    Probably only just bottomed out, so easy to go "must be tight on the dowles" and pull it in with the bolts.

    Did it once with a clutch pack in a transmission housing, was $2000 well spent

    I once fucked an oil pump on a falcon auto doing this. I got half way tight and said to my self this is not right I have never (touch wood) done it since.

    Definitely a trap for young players. Sorry it happened to you but lots of us have learned something from it.

    Yeah, you learn to count the drops putting convertors in. Kinda common to see people not engage the pump and have pain and suffering.

    This one caught me out as it was a five speed and they have flats unlike every other converter from the last 50 years. I had a second box on the ground that was broken so I just gave both to the trans shop and paid 300 and got the job done.
