It'* 1:11 am

Your update is charging the batteries... figures I go to take a pic or vid and they are dead.

<~~~ The Fake Canadian right now
<~~~ Me right now.

We picked up this Buick motor this morning.. junkyarded and then came back and started working. It'* running with one minor issue. The water pump gasket appears to have a slight leak It'* that'* all...I'm ecstatic.

10 seconds and all lifter tick was gone. Purrs like a kitten and the coolant leak may have seated itself. We'll see in the daylight.

So much for being happy.

Motor #2 just went south.

Runs great has perfectly great oil pressure...logged 5 miles around town and feeling good about it. Got on the highway and drove 5 more miles to Walmart, get off highway and have super low oil pressure. I reused my pump, and installed a pressure kit to bring it up a bit.

This motor was either bad or my oil pump is somehow going south once it heats up.
