Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Literally, blew a gasket. Last week, I was heading out on Saturday to a local pond when I noted a cloud of smoke following me. I pulled off the road and to my amazement, found oil pouring from my engine. Luckily I was still close to home and got back without damage to the engine. 

On a positive note, my truck is running again. I had to tear down the front and bottom of the engine, as in totally removed. I've replaced all the seals, oil pump, timing belts, re-timed and tested it this evening. No leaks were evident and everything is running as advertised.

I should be able to come and go as I please by the mid week.

This work has been absorbing all of my free time recently, much to my chagrin. But its now behind me. Perhaps nothing ELSE will go wrong and I can get in a little fishing before the Fall bite dies away.

I'd appreciate everyone sending me some "positive waves," to help along this line. THANKS!

Wow. Talking about a self made auto mechanic. Great job. I'm still a rookie to do an overhaul.
