Well after getting the BBK installed 2 or 3 weeeks ago I made my first WOT run and guess what? Apparently I blew her up! About the time I was getting close to top speed she fell flat and started sputtering and before I could whoa it down and shut it off it was knocking bad! To top it all off when I got back to the truck the sheriff was waiting for us!Where we were riding,(halliburton owns) and they were wanting to press charges on us for criminal trespass. Also got kicked off of a hunting clubs property, and the dude was a real ass...so when I spun around to get off of his lease i spun gravel all over the dude and really pissed him off...accidentally. It gets better...just hold on! We went hunting today and the Sherriff seen the gun in my truck, SK-47. He wanted to look at it and my dumbass forgot to unload it this morning! So this sherriff had me for Criminal trespass, assault, and a felony having a loaded weapon in my vehicle! Now he runs my license to do a check on me...and there was a warrant out for me from telling my step daughters Ex that if he ever threatens my wife again I am going to rip his f"ing head off. Thats a whole nother story.Thank god that he was a 4 wheeling dude! I raced him awhile back and beat him on his banshee and apparently he didn't remember it and he let me off for everything...even helped me push it in my truck! Now he wants to trade my blown up V for a 2002 Mule. So wow can anybody out do that for a day from hell. I still have to go to court next month for threatening this little prick..overall blowing up my V is by far the worst....when I got home it was a quart and a half low on oil. I dont know how, I just checked it 2 days ago and it was fine. Now I dont know what to do! Havent even got it broke in yet. I was going to do the oil change tommorrow for the first time and consider it broke in!! How much am I looking at to do a rebuild on the bottom end...I am assuming that is where the knocking is coming from. It starts and runs just knocks like hell! should I trade for the mule and sell it and buy me another V, does anyone want to trade a nice V for a 1968 Ford Ranger with a 390 in it, totally original in excellent shape? Ideas...help !!!

Makes me want a beer just reading it...sounds like a helluva time.

If it is the bottom end, and you do it yourself, there are (stock) cranks and rods that show up on ebay every now and then for $200 - $300.

sounds like you need to sit down and think about where your life is heading.
you might get to spend some time in the clink...good luck.

was the v blowing smoke? did you do the catch can mod? if not maybe you just blowing oil in the air box.

maybe your luck will change.....

I would almost be willing to bet the bank your blowing oil into your airbox if you havent done the catch can mod. High compression pistons + Unsealed rings = blow by into the crankcase = oil to pour into the airbox. This will make it fall flat on its face and loose a quart plus.

Hopefully your day is better than you think.

Then again you probably dropped a bolt into your crankcase destroying everything including the cases...

I will tear in to it tommorrow, metal alien

I didn't do the catch can, but i did t into the existing vent and the new vent glenn put in and ran it up to a small air filter mounted in the hood smithy 1999

Glenn thanks for everything, you have been outstanding through this whole deal

and i only had 3 rounds in it or i may have been in even more trouble aaron_j

badass no it was not smoking, funny thing is I just checked the oil 2 days ago and it was fine

it seems to have good compression...thats why i think it is in the bottom end
