Turns out that with the clackin' in my engine I talked about earlier, the oil pump shaft isn't all i need to replace.

Talked to a family friend, who owns a car mechanic shop says with the knocking comes metal to metal contact, the rods are only missing by a couple thousands of a inch so when you dont get the oil in there and there is knocking the rod will shave the metal more resulting in a shakey piston which will later lead to worse problems.


NEW PROJECT! </sarcasm>

lifting the engine out and bringing it to a guy near buy to do some work with the crank.

Planning on selling my dirtbike and Nintendo wii =(
Sorry to hear that. Used engine run around $1000

Recently I saw on the Parting Out Vehicles or For Sale forum someone was parting five 80's and had several engines/trans for sale.
It was probibly Oleg from Irbis offroad. Check old posts by Irbis and you will see what he is parting out.
