Big girl is going under the wrench...

Gonna dig into her in a couple hours. She sent a connecting rod through the block, so she's gonna need a heart transplant. ATM I want it to be a fummins, which it's looking like that will be (cheapest and I want RELIABILITY over anything else)

Carnage first....







OH, THAT's where that peice went....




More pics when we dig in.

Just a little leak, she'll be fine

It is a big undertaking, but really I'd end up doing almost as much work replacing just the full rotating assembly. plus I have this beater:



to drive in the mean time. So lots of time, not a lot of cash yet. Guess gauges and a chip won't be on my Christmas list anymore...


BTW, this happened on completely stock programming. intake and exhaust were the only mods.
