Glad everyone is home OK. I have the shortest trip and may have had the biggest problem. This is how I maded it home, the trail rig became the tow rig for about 40 Miles :eek: .

Dang Jamie... what happened? And you do realise if you were gonna give me the "plier" you could have at least repaired it before you delivered it!?! lol

About 5 Miles out of cruces, the newly installed 401 started to spew out oil from the timing chain cover :mad: , Looks like my job of re-assembling the 401 was below par :( . Looks like I just need to remove, re-seal and re-install the cover (and all components attached). The leak seems to be from a bad seal on the gasked and probably caused by not applying proper torque to all of the bolts on the cover. So probably a one day setback.

jeepdreamer
10-18-2009, 02:31 PM
dang man, that sucks. i hate that stupid timing cover!!

Sambo
10-18-2009, 05:12 PM
wow!man that sucks! that was the cover off the original motor right? off the one i got from you? which was in good order when you pulled it!:confused:

An oil pressure switch can short power to ground and start your fun times with melted wire. Micheal pretty well had this nailed.

our PC at home is pissin me off - have not been able to watch photobucket vids for a couple months. I need to take some time at work and look at your vids Michael. I can only catch about 10 seconds at home and it locks up... Firefox and IE and running latest flash plug in. We had real winter like weather this week and I was thinking a few times about the nice t-shirt weather we were having the week of the Enchilada. :thumbsup:
