well the block would be bare at the point of getting the lifter bore bored out , so any metal from the lifter would have long been cleaned out

Well, good news and bad news. The lifter came out today... the roller was sitting right there on the needing to be replaced cam. Unknown where the other pieces are. And that's not the worst part. When the lifter failed it totally screwed the lifter bore and knocked a chunk out of it. Anyone have a block sitting around they don't need?


Time to start looking for a 6.2L take-out!! :mrgreen:

On the Caprice PPV page it was suggested that I look into the warranty. I thought it was 5yr 60k but apparently in 2013 it was still the 5 yr 100k. The vehicle has just under 99k on it now. I went and spoke to the service advisor at my local shop and he told me to put it back together and bring it to them. WARRANTY WILL COVER THE DAMAGE!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D

my brother told me that i somehow end up running into a pile of shit and still come out smelling like roses.

Wow! That is unheard of luck! You might wind up with a brand new crate motor since this one will likely be deemed broken beyond repair. :D

I thought these had a much shorter warranty because of commercial/police use.

my 14 is 100k mileage , which was kept to 15 , then 16's dropped to 60k , but i think some fleet vehicles were able to stay with 100k
