There's going to be a small delay due to finding some shiny speckles under the valve covers. Aluminum. I dumped the oil and saw more shiny speckles on the bottom of the drain pan, copper. Pulled the oil pan and the sump looks good, no copper speckles. Pulled the rear main cap, it shows normal wear. #4 rod bears show fatigue failure of the inserts, probably from lugging the engine. Both journals are OK. I suspect the copper in oil is coming from the front cam bearing, we'll see.
