tough one, I guess I would be inclined to tear it down before it causes any more damage. Did you build the motor yourself?
I had the engine out when I first put the car together, drained all the oil and the plug was perfect when I put it back so this is my doing somehow. Just wondering how severe.Is it possible that there was metal debri from the machining and that is what you are seeing in the rear sump?
Of course I would probably start tearing things down as well.
I'll remember that you have a spare around:driving:I would say if it was a r block or some other "nice" block go looking right away but if its a stock block blow that shit up. lol hell I will give you another 5.0 block
Very good point.Well Taylorkdt has a spare shortblock as well and I wouldn't be so hesitant to just run the bitch except that yeah, my block is just a regular 5 liter block, but the rotating assembly is an all forged Scat/Probe stroker setup. I'd hate to have a bad bearing and hurt that nice SCAT crank.
