It's a little past seafoam I'm afraid!! Cause of death was a small nut that got sucked into the intake!! The brown mud you see used to be synthetic engine oil, mixed with lots of coolant!!! I got everything ordered, so hopefully I'll have her running in no time!!

Holy Cow! That's quite an engine problem.... Well, that's one hell of a project for the auto shop class to work on. Hope everything goes well for you. What was it like when it threw the....piston top? I'm sure lots of nasty noises, but did it "spin down" or did it just seize? Good luck!Christopher

Thank you carwdaddy!! Unplugged; most of the carbon buildup is due to a fuel press. regulator that was going bad and I hadn't replaced yet. The valves looked very clean, usually do use good fuel!! The bottom end had over 160,000 miles on it. Like I mentioned, I always use synthetic oil. And another great product: Lucas fuel system treatment!! Use it every few tankfulls, and it does wonders!!!
