Default Spun a bearing... (With small pics)

Yep. Spun one... On my way to pick up some new drum shoes... And here I was about to do a Sway swap and rebuild this 12.5HP briggs this weekend... I lost Conn. Rod 6, At least it'* not In the car. It'* my 83 chevy 305... Got it torn apart already, I'll pick up parts tomm morning, and try to have it back together by noon... then it'll only have thrown my schedule for this weekend off 24 hrs, hopefully I can just work a little harder and get it done.

I thought it was your car at first.

I spent the day taking the manual steering box off and installing a power steering box on my 69 GMC pickup. The hoses are a bit too short and I will have to tweak the brackets to mount it.

I have a 305 sitting here from a camero and was gonna install it in this truck but I figure if I am gonna put a v-8 I might as well go 350.

I am gonna have to pick up a couple books so I can rebuild which ever engine I get myself. I may use this 305 as a test to see if I can do it and how long it will last.

Isn't it great at how much room there is to work on these trucks, you can just sit inside the engine bay while you work on them, HEHE.

I was happy enough that I could pull the pan without pulling the mounts and winching the block up, that would have sucked. I think I'll end up with .0005 oversize bearings, but it got too dark to play with it anymore, and i'm just plain tired of looking at emery cloth...

Hey, I picked up a test engine yesterday. It'* the briggs, I've got four others just like it, Mom just can't get over that fact... I'm also going to try my hand at this P&P work. I found a guy that will let me use his shop for doing the labor to put electricity in it He'll even teach me what I need to do and the whole nine yards. Then again this guy is old enough to be my grandfather and he knows what bartering is...

New bearings without pulling the engine? Brave man, I would want to pull the engine so I could see it in the light without having to lie on my back LOL. Sounds like you work fast, I spend too much time nitpicking.

Mike, have you already mounted the pump? yours sounds like a fun project

I paid $250 for the truck two years ago... If it needs a new motor, It'* getting sold. And I had my old man push the truck up on ramps with his 85, and slid a light under there. Trucks are like watches here, I only know one guy without a truck, and he sold his to buy the Malibu.
