PostSubject: what to do.   Wed May 05, 2010 2:56 am

I have a blown head gasket, as far as I know, could be worse and the block could be cracked. So I am thinking I should drop another motor in it. Only problem is I dont know who will help me out. Or should I just take my chances and just have the head gasket fixed. This sucks. Ambers car is getting destroyed by using it as a daily driver. We need the xB back on the road. Anyone wanna do a turn around again and swap a motor lol.

Geez, I remember when the guys worked on gandalf's xb it took them more than a day. And the person that did most of the work is no longer in the club. I don't do engine shit, too scared of something messing up.

I talked to Willy, but he is pretty swamped with cars right now with TORC and still has a few more after TORC. If we can hold out that long, I will def have Willy throw down on it. But its just that we need to get Ambers car off the road ASAP.

Thinking that tomorrow going in and seeing if my block is cracked. If not, I will just do the head gasket. Need my xB back on the road.

check the block for ser. and at least do the head gasket as soon as you can. that way you can have it driving a bit till willy can get in on it.

Crappy deal, Chris. Let me know what you decide. You know I'm always down to help, as long as I'm in town. Better do it before it gets too hot, though. I'm gonna be traveling a lot this summer, starting in a couple weeks. Gotta get out of this heat!...//TJ

So I take it that it was not just the radiator when you where having all the over heating issues huh?

How many miles are on that motor? I thought you had some issues with that motor right off the bat? Maybe I am wrong there.

Nah, Big J, this is the first issue I have had with this motor. The last motor I blew a ring or something. This motor has been doing me pretty good. This motor has roughly 80k on it now. The car itself has 158k.
