my beautiful beautiful 250,000+ mile engine has had a `weeping' headgasket for a while. this headgasket has become worse and worse as time has gone by... apparently the final straw was me parking it out front of the shop, and topping the radiator off... came out after work to pull it in the shop, and tried to start it. she turned about 1/3 a crank, and then the starter began jumping off the flywheel, making horrible grinding noises. so, I tried to crank it by hand, to no avail... checking the radiator, I discovered it's about a gallon low, possibly more, and there's no water on the ground. I figgure at least one cylinder is near full of water.
so, engine swap this weekend in a pre-mature sense.
Did you try pulling the plugs and spinning the engine?
.... what, and destroy my excuse to throw a 454 in this thing?
DON'T RUIN THIS FOR ME.
even if it does free up, I can't have an engine that'll possibly lock and sieze at any given moment.
The 454 has been pulled from the other suburban, and now awaits a thorough cleaning, new intake, and new oil pan gasket... VICTORY FOR ZIM!
