Yeah man.. I didn't notice it right away. 'Just started to see smoke out of the left side. Got that sinking feeling like the Cops just lit me up.. Checked the oil pressure and it was steady at like 50psi on the Highway, so I thought it was a Head Gasket. I limped it home in time before the temps got to high. I was grateful that I didn't grenade the motor..
Went to start it the next day just to get the car in a good spot to work on, and it was hydrolocked.. Drained the oil, and it was full of rotten Pea Soup.. Hit the drain on the Catch Can, and couple ounces of water came out. The inside of the Valve Cover looked like they had a layer of Crisco Grease on them.. Pulled the Heads off, and seen the chunk missing on the Piston and was like F%^&.. The Piston was at the top of the stroke, but did the math on the condition of the oil, and figured the Cylinder Wall was cracked. This Motor is dead.. I had hope. LOL
It's not a total loss tho because I went into it knowing that it might die sometime, so I didn't put a lot of money into the Motor. I Ball Honed the Bores and reused everything from the last time I put it together, so I'm really only out Bearings, Rings and Gaskets.. Really, I would have ran it till it died anyways, so this is the best possible way for it to happen I think. I'm lucky that I never got stranded on the side of the road, or at the track..
