HEY i drove it to the 1rst belton meet with a broken flywheel, whooped up on everybody at the dragstrip then drove it home granted not the smartest thing was but i didnt know it was cracled till we pulled the trans. It
Dang you guys up in north Tx. have all the fun.
Sounds like a lot of fun just wish Texas was a little smaller sometimes.:texas:
sounded just like a rod knocking.... so i do DRIVE mime hard and often. It is possible that a valve spring or worse has happened internally.
