planning on pulling apart this weekend. hopefully just a bearing and i can polish the crank, put new bearings and put back together.
I think i pushed her too soon.
went up the hill to searchlight doin 60. i stepped on it and the secondary kicked in......man she had power,. got to 90 then laid off and leveled out at 70.
I was cruisin for a while at about 4,000rpm and i felt a sudden loss of power....first thought was i fouled a plug but after turning down my death metal i heard the rattle.
I shut it down and came to a stop.
a hwy patrol immediately pulled up beside me and asked me if i could make it to the gas station a few miles ahead so he didn't have to stamp it with the wonderful orange sticker.
what choice did i have?
it went from rattle to chitty to bang-bang in 4 miles.
i waited for my bro to come get me from bullhead.
i pulled the valve covers hoping i had a bent push rod or lost a lobe or any other hail mary founded wish upon a star ideas that passed through my mind.
This trucker kept me company with his wisdom...cool southern good 'ol boy standing there with a beer in his hand and another in his pocket asking the same quetions that were running through my mind.
to make a short story long..gonna tear down this weekend and post my findings.
