I don't understand why this would piss anyone off. Its a mechanical device. It will wear out. It will break. Not if, but when. Its part of owning and driving a car. If I blew up an engine cause I did something stupid like ignoring low oil on the dipstick, or exceeding 7000 rpm, now that would piss me off. Losing a bearing on a worn out engine is to be expected



I think Lawrence is referring to a combination of events, including a shop that gained his confidence and then massively disappointed. I can sure empathize (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Statement was not directed at lawrence or anyone in particular. He seems to be taking it in stride. Just a general statement

The oil in my now defunct 2.0 /4 was NOT LOW.

I'm moving on and learning from my experience with the asshole in Oceanside.

The 2.7 is en route, it shipped and I'm thinking it gets here Friday.

As my boss Marvin Foster at Continental Cars in Austin back in the 70's would say.... "Press On"

Motors just don't trash a bearing randomly, They do when they have no oil though.

When you drain four quarts out of an engine, it seems that it wasn't low on oil.

I still have the oil from that engine, and I am pressing on. It will work out fine.

Stay tuned.

This arrived safe and sound today. Now, all I have to do is everything else to get it installed and running.

This should be challenging and fun.

That's weird, your headers are pointing the wrong way. Looking forward to you getting speedy back on the road. Looking forward to watching your build.

It's not necessarily a lack of oil in the crank case, but starvation to a particular component due to a blockage in an oiling port ... and typical when it's only one rod bearing.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) "oil starvation". Not your fault. New engine looks way more better (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) .

I sold the white car this morning and now I am concentrating on the /6 conversion at hand. Two nice little packages arrived today from Phoenix.

Lawrence, did you get close to what you were asking for the white car?
I saw it posted on CL. Congrats!

I loved my 2.7, but it did run hotter than my 3.2 and needed an external oil cooler.
2.7 with webers sound was amazing. It was like your own personal lemans movie with Steve McQueen. I still remember driving back and forth through the alameda tunnel just to listen to the motor.

Going with the front oil cooler for sure……

It's on my list, as are PMO carbs, Clewett ignition system, and the chain oiling system.

This stuff is expensive.
