Well after almost 6 years of trouble free operation the drive in the 73 went tits up with terminal results. For whatever reason it locked up and of course the oil pump went out. But... as with all my rigs it died in the driveway and not in BFE. It's to nasty out to pull the pan and see if the crank is smoked but the kibbles and bits that came out of the drain did not look good. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif So now it is either drop $400 and put the K5 back together or $1000 to build the other BBC in the shed. With only one rig left to drive it looks like the K5 is gonna get DD duty again for a bit. And right about now a 4x4 would be real nice, that stang is a freakin scary ride in the snow and ice with no chains. Anyway after this I won't install another geardrive. They sound cool and all but if they are gonna grenade and wipe out an engine... Hopefuly it didn't run long enough to do serious damage. I'm hoping that the Powerpunch that I add did what it is supposed to do and kept the block from being 800 pounds of scrap.
