And the fun begins.

Or not, one day before it was suppose to be in storage, now it's race against time, it started to making funky noise suddently out of no where.



And yup, the guides are shattered.

No, but I need to get it done before snow or ice on the ground so I can drive it to storage.

I'm not too sure if I'll go for swap, $800 in parts + my time to fix this or $8000 in parts + my time to do the swap, I'm getting sensible

Fil, where do you get your new engine parts from? AutoPartsWay is out of lot of parts that I need and I can only order what's in stock, i.e. they only have 3 camshaft seals and I need 6.

My wallet may not agree

an hour or so everyday has gotten me to this:



I just packed up the stuff into garage, but I've gotten just about everything include radiator off minus the crank pulley, now I have to go buy new breaker bar and wait for the parts to come in.
