    what a weekend ok i know this isnt a 4 wheel thing but I talk to everyone in here not in the lounge. so i bought a tbi engine from a "friend" of my girlfriends after spending all day on saturday and most of the day on sunday I get the motor all in and ready to fire and trying to turn it over it freezez up so we take out the plugs and kick it over and out of one cylinder comes a ton of oil and out of another comes water and another both so we pull the distributor and see it covered in crap so we decide to pull off the intake and it is caked in muck about 3/4 inch thick so I was so pissed off i beat the sh!t out of an old block sitting on the ground with a sledge hammer and then pulled it all back out in like an hour and a half. ok enough out of me i have done my ranting [​IMG]

    That sux big time, hopefuly you can get your money back.
    I looks like you took it apart in the middle of a dirt storm. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
    That is one nasty lookin plant.
    Another victim of too many oil changes, definately takes the Holy sh!t award.
    The engine that I just dropped in had 4500 miles on it and the guy ran Penzoil in it. That crap makes a mess fast.
    I had to soak the lifters in carb cleaner to get them out.
    It took me 2 hrs to get them all out, had to keep working them up and down. I had to drive 2 of them through the bottom with a punch and hammer.
    At least I can salvage mine.

    /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif I have heard stories about that but had not seen it before.

    On the other motor you are getting from hipinion I would recommend you pull the heads and intake. The manifold was open riding in the back of the truck coming up and I am afraid something might have fallen into the intake. Especially when I started loading other items over and around it. Would not hurt to take the time to put some new gaskets in it anyway.

    looks like a damn fossil. What a piece of crap that "friend" sold you. Looks like they pulled it out of a river and then sold it. Geez, get your money back on that one....what did it cost anyways?
