Sounds like progress! Good job even though there are a lot of hard knocks. It’s hard to tell what would be more costly, going through one like you’re doing or not going through one. You will know what you have. At your juncture, I had wrist pin bushings redone at a properly tooled machine shop after machine shop #1 ‘borrowed a tool from John Deere’ (tapered bushings) to install, then honed by hand I believe. Maybe don’t mess with wrist pin bushings if yours feel right and measure to spec. A good machine shop will install then ream bore all 4 OS inside diameter bushings to spec and equally center to center of the rod.
