Exclamation Warning for everyone.

This is for folks that havent been through this or seen this both veterans and newbies

If your lpop gives way or starts to have a problem take care of it right away. Always change your filters in time. If you see any shavings DO NOT get away and say whatever learn from my mistake.

My motor is torn apart currently ended up having to rollers fall part do to metal shavings, as well as a pitted cam. Now also found out one of the crank bearings is scored, also a few piston rings gone and having blow by. So for anyone that thinks they got it bad try being in my shoes. Looking at about 5k worth of repairs and parts.

The whole block is torn apart currently down to the bare block, pistons are out, crank is out etc etc. Dont let shavings go by or your gonna be asking for trouble.

The cost and climb to gaining more horsepower and torque. If you build it do it right the first time and dont half ars it or you'll pay later.

Shavings are never a good sign. Of course this gives you the chance to build up a really stout bottom end. Good luck with the rebuild.

6.0 only have one oil filter on top of the motor, my lpop gave out so it sent shavings all over the place. Shavings were in my filter and the bottom of the oil filter housing.

How do your gears look? How long from the time you started seeing shavings until you tore the engine down? That seriously sucks, but hopefully your misfortune will prevent this from happening to someone else.

PS. Do you have any pics of the damage?

I'll work on the photos when I get the camera back from them, just a few months after we saw the lpop gears.
