Blown Motor

Ths sucks, I have been trying to get my K5 running right and it has had a knock and running on 7 cylinders. Monday night I put a new cap and rotor on the distributor and fired it up. It ran for about 15 seconds and just died. I got out and saw oil mixed with coolant pouring from the oil pan. There is a fist sized hole blown through the drivers side of the pan and I found the bottom of a connecting rod on the floor. I havent pulled the motor yet so I am not sure what other damage there is there yet. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]
