Re: 2.8 Rod Knock
Sorry, too far away. I emailed you earlier this week (my cousin is in 101st too).
Well, the local junk yard has a few running 2.8s and he said "a couple hundred" but I mentioned that I have some vehicles for him to pick up (5 junk/stripped vehicles) and a $50 vw beetle near complete and rusty, he said if I unbolt the 2.8 he will pull it and we would swap (my 6 cars/trucks total for his running 2.8). We both settled. For now, the 2.8 will be fine. I have a TH350 that the reverse went out of, it would be fun to build that and eventually build a 350 for it, but I decided to put my 350 I have now into my mud truck instead of having a blown (head gaskets and bearings and rings) big block. I will probably do the propane setup once again on the mudder because that engine, although blown, looked like new inside. NO CARBON BUILDUP after 15+ years in a school bus then in a mud truck! Well thanks for input, but I guess I solved it myself and got to clean up the yard while I was at it!
