Got the trans and flywheel off and found the oil leak it's not the rear main seal it's coming from the passenger side corner of the rear main cap between it and the block the owner of the machine shop that did the motor work is going to meet me where my truck is and fix it

Barry's always been good to his word, and his machinist is a stand up guy. He'll make it right.

So when I first start it up in the am and it's cold it runs rich no big deal but after I drive it awhile at an idle it'll be lean like 16.2 to 17.6 any ideas? When I'm driving though it's like 14.7 to 15.3 and when in boost it's like 12.6 so idk if I need an adj fpr. also there's a slight knock at a certian rpm I took to the machine shop I had build the motor and so he could see it run after he fixed the leak I did not notice the knock I'll he was reving the motor he knows his stuff from what I can tell and he said it sounded like a spark knock so I rechecked my timing and it's 9-10* any ideas there

Have you put her on a dyno yet? Sounds like she just needs a good tune and fuel pressure adjust, maybe an upgraded high flow high pressure sending unit.
