    That shiny hole on the right frame , is that where tow trucks put their hooks to tow it on the flat bed?

    See anything wrong with these flywheel bolts?


    Or what about this #4 main cap?
    Well, looks like somebody didn't want to go to the time and trouble to change the auto flpwheel bolts to std. shift. And, as for as the main cap, I have seen this happen when they were put on backwards. Was the chunk in the pan?

    Man, what a mess someone has made in this engine.
    The crankshaft looks like it was run dry a few miles. The PO said he did run it very, very hot once.
    The rod inserts were std. when the were installed, but the crank looks like it may have been welded up, theres flaking and pits on #3 journal, the only one I looked at..
    Numbers 1, 2,and 3 rods are in the correct places but all others are all mixed up. Four of them are on the wrong side of the engine.
    Now I gotta pull the engine.

    Just curious as to why you think I should?
    I saw no reason to.

    Yeah, the PO said it was like that when he got the car 8 years ago. Looks no more than couple months old. I don't like it but it did allow more ground clearance. Both pipes almost fit into the batwing's hump.

    If you're forcing it, then it just ain't natural.

    Did you see where some Ass cut a hole in the firewall to access the temperature sender. There's enough room between the head and firewall to change it, why do it the hard way? Seems like extra work to me.

    This afternoon I pulled Buttercup's engine.
    I love my Hyster.











    Tomorrow I'll give the engine bay a good cleaning in preparation for a re-paint. I'll be going back with the original colors. A much mellower yellow with a white top.

    Sorry it's a mess. Gives you a good reason to drop an LSx in.
