    Bonking ... not feelin' well yyyyup....

    after nearly 3 months of biching, moaning, depression and separation anxiety... nearly 1k on tools, a new distributor, alternator, water pump, battery, plugs and wires... a buddy called me late last night with his 30th Ann. T/A having the same symptoms as mine had and suggested i do a simple valve cover removal....... well...













    looks like i'll be paying off the remaining 3 credit cards before playing again

    At least you didn't have to dig very far. Hopefully the valve isn't bent.

    i think it is. a guy in the car club told me to pull up on it so it wouldn't fall and it didn't move..i even pushed it to see if it would fall in to the cylinder and it didn't budge, couldn't even rotate it. i'll probably pull the head off in a week or two. hopefully there isn't any damage to the head. when it went out i didn't hear or feel any metal on metal symptoms
