Time goes by......

Days and years
Only you and I

Great days
Wasted nights
Hurt by you

I fell in love
Broke the trans
Nothing left to use

Dust and rust
Your life slides past
No one to help you with

So it goes
stronger still
Hard times dirt and grease

Build with pain
Pride and joy
Remember that and drive

From HeepJ4000:
Did run the 360 engine in my 73' j4000 on propane with a impco kit as a daily for thirteen years.
And also run on highway speeds on hot days.
Did run it a couple times overheated when the radiator lost a lot of cooling fins.
It was a good used and sometimes abused engine ,but never gave me trouble with a head or head gasket.

It finally stopped running on all eight cylinders and after a compression test it barely had any compression left , so parked the truck before destroying the engine.
Later on pulled the engine and I'm now working on it to have a Cummins 12 valve diesel engine.

Mmm

Don't know how this post above ended up there!?

Maybe it's possible that SC/397 can remove it?
Thanks!
