Aaand we're back to where we started... changed the oil today and somewhere within the two 7k rpm pulls it has some metal in the filter. Leaving for the Gators tomorrow so I'll be taking it off the cart next week and back to an engine stand so I can figure this out.

I can't remember the clearance, maybe .0023. Dial bore and mic. This isn't a clearance issue, it's an oiling issue.
