Don't go dropping coin on a new motor just yet - it probably just needs some Restore oil additive to boost those compression numbers back up. Smile Smile Smile Smile

Dumb question, but did you check the valve adjustment? If the valves are out of adjustment it could cause the low compression. :-k

No I didn't. This may be the most expensive valve adjustment ever. Wink Wink

I knew this was coming. It's been eating oil for the last couple years. Happened about a month sooner then I was preparing for.

Rear crush panels, fills the space between the chassis and the body. And impact foam, the blue stuff that comes flying out when the wreck.

Not for the daily. I have a bus to start working on soon that will need a big lump.

Broken throwout bearing clip. Had to go home on a flatbed. No damage luckily. \:D/

Fuel pump spit its pivot pin on Monday morning after I got the throw out bearing clip fixed that weekend. ](*,) ](*,)
Ran over to Painters grabbed a new one with c-clips on the pivot pin. Roadside fix, drove her home from work.



NASCAR. Beought home a souvenir the other day.
