Because when we log into our Google Webmaster Tools account, Google still thinks Site 1 is redirecting to Site 2. Keep in mind Site 1 had an unnatural links penalty more than a year ago. As a result, Penguin 2.1 penalty is being passed over to Site 2 via the 301.
Site 1 still has quite a bit of unnatural links pointing to it. We've removed as many as we could and the rest were uploaded into the disavow file.
Goodroi, you still recommend we put the 301 back in place?
