^^ Last I checked it's a "stock" 3.2L 24v motor.
That title sounds oddly appropriate.
as far as the car goes right now its registered, insured. maybe I should start to get it tuned now.
I have a full plate of things outside of this, so bare with me. next week is vbs and the week after is baseball camp.
hey guys just a small update not too big. was driving around doing Logs, car felt really good, with super safe a/f ratios. But I think It might have spun a bearing. it starting tapping a few blocks on the way to the house. As a whole iam not disappointed at all all this is very fun to me it might be alil frustrating but its not since I have so many other things ive been busy with and an awesome daily driver that I dont deserve.
Baseball camp was great this week and the kids were awesome, took a road trip to Canada/Niagra Falls for 4th of July for vacation. The summer has been very good, truely blessed to have been able to do and see what ive been able to.
Im in the process of getting a new garage door so once that is done maybe ill inspect further. Iam not sure what ill do next.
sorry for the personal life stuff but Im just trying to be as transparent as possible with who ever is following. That these things does happen but it could have been worst.
any questions just shoot here or in PM's. Have a good rest of the summer everyone!
hahah from now to sunday. thats impossible for me. and my one man crew. If I would have known u was going to be there I would have been extra careful this week. I might try something out but I had no plans to go to waterfest with the car. ill be at waterfest though.
Better it going at low load then at full tilt at the track! I recovered from an engine fire on wed to run wf sunday.. Plenty of time
I figure I post what was the noise and the issues I had. For anyone who had a similar noise.
this was the noise.
I first changed checked the
bearings ... good
changed the lifters .... noise came back
tentioner bolt .... noise came back
bought a oil pump
then I went to change it and my wrist pin clip was in the oil pan.
From that point I knew it could be bad.
damaged cylinder wall.
so as of right now this project is dead. Its been real fun over the years guys hope this helps anyone. Iam fully certain if this didn't happen the car was on its way to put down 300+whp. If anybody has questions feel free to pm me. Take care everyone.
God is still Good. Happy Good Friday everyone.
Sucks, but sometimes a setback leads to unexpected progress. Hopefully you get what's coming next all worked out.
Nothing was a weak link. The only way the wrist pin clip can come out is if it wasnt installed properly meaning it wasnt seated in the groove. The wrist pin clips are very hard to come out once they are in. And even when the clip was out the wrist pin too is very tight in the piston.
Thats a totally different engine, an even bigger one.
