I have the new engine in mine now but the old one, I am not sure what to do with it...
It made a screech/knock/screech/knock kind of sound and from looking at youtube videos its sounding like a spun rod bearing. It still started and ran sort of ok when it blew but I shut it down and towed it home within seconds of detonation.
But what I am wondering is what to do with it now, are the heads "probably" still good? I can assume the crank and at least one rod is hosed but are there still lots of usable parts on the longblock someone could use that knows these engines really well?
It's got 50,162 miles on it.
Is it just junk?
Thanks for replies.
