Dodge 5.9 blown piston rebuild

I spent the last three weeks doing a partial rebuild on my truck, most of that time was spent waiting for the parts to arrive that I ordered online. The truck is back together now and running, time will tell if it will last or not, I hope so since I plan to drive it 350 miles to Maine for Easter. Sorry about the jerky video, I still haven't figured out a good way to capture off my camera, my capture card doesn't give me the quality I would like and my camera isn't compatible with Vista, I did this one on a different computer that was running XP and its clearer but I think the computer was too slow...I think I need a newer camera

How to determine if you have rod knock by taking off the oil pan. This car is a 1996 Toyota Paseo 1.5 liter. The oil circuit for cylinder one got a piece of foil blocking it. The connecting rod on that cylinder died an ignominious death.
