Well, BP named it..
Sounds sort of ominous, like it should be a fast car.. Maybe someday.
Anyway, I am going to get the new block and rotating ass'y. on the 26th.
I am still short a valve train and heads for the new motor.
For the time being, I have decided to get the old junk motor back together and freshen it up with a new cam and lifters.
i don't know why the head gasket popped but that old motor sure is nasty inside.
Everytime I turn a wrench on it, i am covered with black yuck.
That will make me appreciate the new one that much more.
If any of you are at all interested, I am going to replace the carpet and the headliner as well. I have never done a headliner before I can post pics if anyone cares.
More to come...
