  • Thrown rod

    Turns out the 4E truck had not "thrown a rod" as listed on ebay, but a wire was loose on the starter. Once we fixed that, we did hear some loud rod rapping, but was able to drive it around the driveway. The PO had been driving it like that, but I never would. Now I need to decide rather to save the 245 six, or do the Caddy swap.

    John,

    If you are going to pull the Commander motor and not use it I would be interested in it.

        I think that truck would enjoy a nicely refreshed 289
