    New from the garage... :'(

    So they got the valve cover off and the news isnt good...

    The number 8 cylinder intake isnt moving... the motor spins, but the rocker doesnt move...and its sticking up like the spring is holding it there and tehres no input from the other side. hes gunna take the head off tomorrow he has to drop the motor, but hes gussing a pushrod, valve or cam lobe.

    anyone take a guess?

    Could be any of them. Sounds more like a bad lobe or a bad lifter. Why does the motor have to be dropped? Pull the intake and then there should be enough room to remove the head.

    Because with a lift and the right tools, you can have the entire motor/ tranny assembly out of the car in about one hour.

    Any chances that the tranny problem either cause or was the result of whatever happend to the motor? I cant seem to think of the coincidence level involved with both going in the same 10 minute period... but i cant see how something could have travelled through the rotating assembly from the tranny to the top of the valvetrain... do i jsut have that shitty luck with this fuckin car? once its back together i think i can only hope to sell it at this point :'(
