I'm not sure yet. I'll need to tear it down to find out. What hurts the most is that I just put a lot of time into doing the intake gaskets and a bunch of other maintenance. ::sigh::

Anybody want to buy a beautiful Bonneville that needs an engine?

How did it die? Just lock up or rattling but still running? I bet you can rebuild it.

It'* frozen solid. I can't even crank the engine over. I've thought about rebuilding this one with performance parts (cam, etc). But there'* so many miles on it that I'm not sure if it'* really worth it.

EDIT: Too sad for this ****. I'm gonna take the Civic and head into town and have a couple of beers. I'll be back on tomorrow sometime. Thanks for everyones condolences.

Try pulling the plugs and cranking it, You may have hydrolocked the motor, espeically if you had a leaky intake gasket.
