If you can rotate the engine at 15# on all rod bolts, tighten one rod to 40# and rotate. If it still rotates easily go to the next. When it becomes hard to rotate, you have found the problem.

I don't use bearing guard. Use the oil that it will be running in service. Also check the caps. Are any swapped or backward?

I would not run the engine without the proper torque applied to the rod nuts. Bolts need to be stretched to provide the proper clamp load.

If anyone has ever seen someone burned by hot fluid, pressurized or not, I'm sure they will agree that a few dollars to add a safety feature such as a barb is money well spent.

As rubber compounds and antifreeze formulas (alcohol vs glycol) have changed, I won't rely on friction/memory and clamping of a hose to a smooth metal tube.

You will need to have the ends rolled or create barbs with weld to keep the hose sections from slipping. Mandrel bends are constant diameter.
