Re: Forgive me for I have sinned...
Also, and obviously, monitor the oil level for thenext few weeks, if it goes down again, ad you're not smoking, look for leaks from seals, and gaskets, don't forget the back of the heads...
hope you dind't do any permanent damage. reminds me of a Ford truck my brother had, I had it for a year while he was in Korea with the Army. i took good care of that thing. he came back and about a year later I borrowed it to haul some furniture about 60-70 on the highway. fired it up, horrible noise of clicking that went away after a few seconds. hhmph, ok, drove about 40 miles down the highway, all was fine. got out for a bit, got back in, fired it up and the sme noise. turned it off, pulled the dip stick, NO OIL! LANCE you stupid $%^%! he had oil bottle of oil in the tool box, i dumped it in, and went to the store to get more.
I sure am glad that when I had it, I used Duralube in it. The engine never got hot, ran beautifully, and kept running for as long as he had it.
Hope you have the same story with yours.
