Look what came out of my engine.

So, was breaking down the motor that came out of the 87 parts truck just to see how bad off it was. Figured I could at least save a few internals for spares or maybe even rebuild it.

 

SLUDGE!! :ack:

 

 

I wondered why the radiator had no liquid in it. :shake:

 

Here's what laid beneath the head.

 

KABOOM!! :eek:

 

#4, or what's left of it and a good bit of the cylinder wall is missing.

 

Well, I think I'll just throw it in the pile with the rest of the stuff for the scrapman. :thumbsup:

That'll buff out.

 

Do I spy a snap-on tool set in pic #1. If so, the SAE version got me through my 4.0 rebuild :yes:

 

Don't think so... looks identical to my first Craftsman set, 263 piece set that came holder thinger with 3 or 4 drawers.

 

That be the one. Got it on some rediculous sale one day. Had to go to three stores to find one in stock. Don't know how I lived without it. :D

 

:cheers:

Well, I bought it from a guy who bought it from another guy. My guy said he thought it had a blown head gasket but had not tried to start it. Soooo, I think he knew and just didn't want to blow the deal. I wasn't wanting it for the motor anyway so I didn't care what condition it was in. But yea, I bet the last 60 seconds of it's life was pretty exciting.

Pretty exciting is most like likey an gross understatement. I would have been interested in firing it up and hearing what that brand of death sounds like. :brows:

 

Epic fail.
