I’m assuming woody is busy.Since there has been no response from Woody, I'm going out on a limb and say you bought this engine from FordStrokers. If so.....I need to go get my popcorn....lol.
I do not want to be a dick to anyone here and play games by not saying who built it but like I said I do not want to be a dick to who built it because they did help me the first time and I do have that much little bit of respect left for them, I am just not like that.
Even though I am "making a federal case" and blah blah and I still stand by everything I said.
I will admit at the end of the day there are many more things, far worse that could have happened or be happening so taking the severity of the situation, which is low I just don't feel it right to say who it was. Just trying to stay neutral and get people to question things a little before they just fork out money and just make sure expectations are set. That is all, and I wanted to see what all of you would have done if you were me. I do not need help to find the leak and fix it, I can do that. I was more trying to get opinions and raise awareness so someone in the future can avoid this
can you tell us it isnt? Lol look at the post right after yoursI’m assuming woody is busy.
Also, I can tell you it’s not woody. You can do a little digging and find out who it is in about 5 mins.
OK, tracking now, I read it as you pull the cap and put some under the cap and reassemble; I too put some across the parting lines.i just put a little on the outside edge of the cap where it sits on the block. i feel its good good practice and doesn't hurt anything.
anything that's exposed to the rear of the block.
Not all cranks have through holes on them, some are blind holes, so only loctite is needed.Somewhere I read where thread sealant is not designed to work on "Rotating Masses"..... I also read ( probably on this site) that Ford motor racing recommended using Permatex on the flywheel bolts, not loctite...

Lol, woody posted right after me, I didn’t feel like going back and editing my post. When op posted a few days ago, I did a little searching.Lol.....Since you were wrong, who did you think it was?
I have a not so decent memory, so I couldn’t tell you. I got curious and went through a few old posts and saw that, and thought that’s who put the block together. Of course, I was wrong…I have a decent memory and remember a post where woody said something about getting the 408 stuff and assembling it within the past month or two. I'd search but I'm too lazy.
No harm no foul, I would of assumed the same had I of seen that.
