    Sooooo
    Had a awesome night last night picking up pieces of my block all the way up a road.







    Don't really know what went wrong but I would assume I had rod failure. Pull away from the traffic light normal, put into 2nd then put my foot flat and BOOM game over. Gona start moving things around in my garage today and push the car in and start stripping. If the head is not damaged I'm going to get another block and do forged internals and agu pistons. If the head is damaged I'm screwed and will have to get a complete motor

    I don't think your foreign kidneys would survive the transit to the UK dude

    If you're willing to donate a liver thought I could send an AGU engine your way, then I'd be able to drink more beer without worrying as I'd have a spare

    Sorry Miggles. That one was too good not to share!

    i'd happily give you my old agu bottom end, but its done 347 000 km, and it weighs more than i do so would cost the GDP of Luxembourg to ship over!

    rebuild in progress

    ok so got some work done yesterday satrted stripping and moving things to get the motor out. will go with Dwayne tonight to get a engine crane and engine stand.

    got the car into the garage, what a mission it was with out reverse gear working lol



    1st up was to remove the bonnet and wrap plastic around the fenders as to not scratch them












    then started removing battery, covers, water hoses and plugs











    thats the damage so far all i can see is that the rod snapped by the small end and the rod hit the block and jammed it self in to the sump. i see no makings on the sleeve which i hope is a good sign and that the head is not damaged

    ok so my mate lee says he might have a complete AUM bottom end for me and a set of AGU pistons.

    the plan for the rebuild goes like this:

    * AUM block
    * AGU pistons
    * forged rods
    * new bearings and seals
    * redo all valve stem seals and guides
    * flow the head
    * new oil pump

    and all the other little stuff that goes with the rebuild
