Default Can My NEW Motor BE SAVED

I have a NEW JP Eagle (rs, just after break in , i tried to change rod, key works TRY, the wrist-pin, the new and old one, were not coming out without a fight!! So i was able to get a new pin in there and a new g-clip, just didn't have another for the other side, so i contacted Murnan Modified's to see if he can help, he couldn't get the wrist-pin out i put in, and in doing so, destroyed the new pin that i had in place, now the comments i received were that the other side where the clip goes is destroyed, so a clip couldn't go in there, should i just have left the wrist-pin and new rod in place and maybe soaked in oil overnight, as it was only that much tighter than a new writing??? ii am very concerned , because now im being told i have to change the p/s/r?? which i do not want to do, as its BRAND NEW...very frustrated here, any help or advice is appreciated, as spending another 275.00 for a NEW motor is just not what i planned, i was going to race the motor this week instead, it looks like i have ,1150.00 novarossi motor, with bad bearings as well, has anyone heard of both JP eagle bearings going bad after a gallon, they felt fine to me?? i will inspect motor this week when its returned to me, i am not calling anyone out, or blaming anyone but myself, as i think i should of went with gut and just soaked over night, maybe a lil heat on and work it in a bit, who knows, but i need a solution, besides buying a new p/s/r, thanks for any input here guys

As if other brands can not have these prices and problems?

OK, the fast Novarossi (based) engines are expensive but aren't Picco's with bad rods exploding to soon not the same?
