Officially Bored with 347

I bought this 347 kit way back in nov97 & had it fitted in feb this year from Coast High Performance in the US.
The scatt crank was a new unit not one of those offset ground cranks inwhich was nitrided & has 3.4" stroke i think?
The rods are 4340c/moly "crower" units with Probe forged pistons 30 over,Childs+Albert rings etc,ARP rod/main studs + Steel Girdle.
As ya might have seen in the pics Trickflow heads,Edelbrock manifold etc.
The reason i pulled the motor out was for some reason i lost oil pressure not all of it but enuff to make the gauge sit in the red.Ripped it apart today to find 1 bolt from oil pump sitting in the sump & the other worked its way 2mm out & the the oil pump swinging in the breeze.
The eng. was fully balanced,blue printed & properly clearanced by a REPUTABLE ENGINE BUILDER in West Oz (Perth, Morley to be exact)
Ive had 2 oil pickups break within 1yr & thought this was it but to find the pump loose didnt make me a happy camper to say the least & they will be getting a nice visit tomorrow to c if they will come to the party & re-enburse me for the hire & parts so ill c how it goes in the morning...... Cheers :mmmmm:
