Well, god luck with this one, looks like you'll have a fresher motor then you originally sought out to do!

If you blow that up, you probably shouldn't show up around here for a while

Wren may have gotten his on the road first, but you still have more pages on your thread!

and more dead motors...

Godspeed !

Is anybody else getting tired of posting in two separate threads about this thing???

Good luck, buddy! This one looks promising so far.

The only reason for the second post was to keep the main public that never comes to P&B up to speed. Most times there can be a 15 page thread here and friends say "what, when?" lol. (meanwhile shuddap... I'm catchin Wren in posts.)

The way the last motor went..it was bad from the junkyard. Anyone that works as a mechanic or with one..knows from time to time..you get a bad one and it sucks.

My approach has been to keep the wrenches turning until things are good. Keeps me from thinking about how much a bad motor sucks ... think about the amount of work for 10 f'n miles. .... repeat after me..10 miles.

Can one of you 00+ owners take a picture of the lower intake manifold bolts for me. Oddly enough..the 97 bolts and others I've done were rounded at the top of the head..these are very crisp and precise....

No worries there Paul..I do only good quality work. A bad junkyard motor can happen to anyone on a budget. They stood behind it and took care of the situation. Now I'm doing my part with the new motor. It exhibited KR in the first couple miles, my original motor ran with no KR with the proper temp. This one should do the same or better, then apply a proper tuning and it should be quite fast.

Funny you say that, one night Wren calls and during the convo..he mentions I need to get moving since he "passed" me with his thread. I laughed it off and mentioned his needed a rename since winter was over and it'* taken him since November.

Since..I ended up thrashing two motors... makes for a lot of posts doesn't it? One might think I slaughtered them to get ahead...lol (No way is it worth that).

Tonight I'll be getting some pics inside the oil pan from the last disaster. Randman and I were impressed by the large chunks of metal. That one was coming apart at the seams. Pete and I went from not hearing it..to having a check engine light in about 5 miles.
