    Down Again

    So for the third time, engine is down again. I had a waterpump issue that led to me blowing off the upper radiator hose. Overheated and blew the head gasket steam cleaning #8. In the process, I spun a bearing also and got some heavy duty rod knock. So I'm going to do a fatty rebuild to prep for a blower. I'll post pics tomorrow of the damage and updated pics of the rebuild

    i feel for ya. ive been there. one of my bearings spun and then stacked on top of each other. i tried to go the easy way out and get my crank welded and then turned. i dont recommend that cause my crank eventually broke in two. it broke on a rod journal and luckly i didnt need mine line bored. just a hone job.
