It looked pretty straight so not sure.I did figure out how to get it started last night it still has the knock at 1200 rpm. It did not seem as bad as before but its still there.So now I guess I drop the oil pan. Its just not ending with this truck

Made a stop on the way... yeah someone stole the box out of the back.Martin is getting ready to go on a 3 week vacation, and to make matters worse apparently the 48RE valve bodys are not a dime a dozen and hard to find.So now Martin has to find a valve body and re-work the new one.I did ask how it looked, he said there was no bore damage but had some sticky valves from lack of maintenance. The ATF fluid did not look like it had ever been changed. Other than that he said he did not see any major issues with it and it should be ok for a while.He did mention that a blown head gasket can sometimes cause a knock if its blown between cylinders and not a water jacket?I might pull the head... can't hurt before pulling the block out and would make it lighter to pull the block.
