When i pull the oil filter off its about an inch down from the top. Why would that be is there somthing that could be blocked in the block? The pressure was kinda bouncing. This is a 400 sbc.

When i pulled it apart the side of the thrust bearing was allmost gone. The rest of the mains looked ok, i havnt checked the rods yet.

Be shure that when your rear end wraps forward under acceleration, and pushes your driveshaft and your transmition forward. if this is to far, this will wear out your thrust bearing in your engine.
