yeah but you gotta use the 100mph stuff on that!!!
Would love to see pics of his Mark II; please post some whenever convenient. Thanks.
I saw a blown small block chevy where 3 or 4 pushrods wrapped u-shaped around the crank. Absolutely NO idea how difficult it would be for them to drop down there.
Next time I go over there which may be soon though I’m presently having allergy
It looks like a giant bright green beetle.
looking straight at/perpendicular either side... noting the hood proportions. Instead of big green bugs, Can ya imagine how the designers of first gen Chevy Monte Carlo might, just might have been inspired? Squint while looking sideways & try it again.
You have to try pretty hard to 'splode a 3.8
Yeah… almost unheard of for those engines to blow.
Don’t know why one rod decided to leave the party like that. :confused
Would think it would have to be a spun bearing. Sometimes those don’t show a change in oil pressure depending on where in the lube path they occur. But yeah that 3.8 is a tough bugger.
I once had what I think was a rod failure on my 996 Carerra. Kept running all the way to the gas station, but somewhere along the way it caught fire!
fire marshal and the cops asked “why on earth did you go to a gas station with your car on fire” I said, “well… I knew for sure they would have fire extinguishers!”
That term, I believe, originated with front-engine dragsters and Altereds, maybe others, when they would duct tape weight to the front axle to limit wheelies. I don't know if anyone was ever hurt but NHRA woke up to that danger, eventually, when clamps became the requirement.
I spun bearing twice in a a 3.8. After long wide open pulls the oil light came on. I think the oil wasn't getting back to the oil pan fast enough. Once they start knocking it's just a short matter of time before the splode.
