Changing my Sig---Rant Mode On!!!

Recommended Posts

OK I'm really thinking I should change my board name to Roseanne Rosanna Danna,,,"If it's not one thing it's another!"

I have done two tranny changes this week. Last night I got the latest tranny in and took the car out drinking,,,er,,,for a test drive. Everything was great till this morning. Driving to the shop and my oil pressure drops off and the car starts to smell like burnt oil. And when I stop it starts to smoke pretty good. Popped the hood to find oil everywhere but no sign of a leak. Rev the motor up and I find the leak alright. Damn o-ring betwean the cam case and head has expired with extreme prejudice and is squirting oil when the pressure hits hard. So I got the extreme pleasure of resealing the passenger side cam case in a sea of oil spray,,,yummy,,,and of course being a flaming stupid idiot I managed to put the cam sprocket back on 180 degrees off. Suprisingly it ran. OK rant mode off,,,thanks for listening.

had one similar episode recently,

aquired a car that had an aftermarket oil press gauge.


about two weeks later i see a bit of a drip, the much more,

then its all over the place and rippling up the hood on the highway.


cant quite tell where its coming from, so i tear the whole front

end off, do the seals, and an aluminum radiator.


all back together, take it for a ride, see drips again.

same quanitity, but no clear leaks on the clean block...



stuck a web cam in a plastic bag, tape that to a stick, start the motor, and see the tiny plastic hose from the oil pump to the aftermarket gauge has a pinhole leak and its shooting a narrow stream of oil at the motor.....



*sigh* so it goes





"ya never know for sure, till its too late"

You may need to explain who Roseanne Rosanna Danna is. I'm not sure if the younger crowd on this board would know who Roseanne Rosanna Danna is. I mean, I was still in diapers when Gilda started doing that character on SNL as14.gif
