So two posts ago I wrote that I blew the engine 2 times in 3 days. Well is took a while to get to writing this, but the very day that I put the new rod bearings in I blew it up again, this time pretty bad.

Blew another head gasket, but also melted a piston and melted a bit out of the block.

Now for my big dilema. I've got two spare blocks, but both need to be bored out. One has worn cylidners, and the other has some rust pitting. I can't afford to bore one and buy pistons right now, so I'm thinking I'm just going to let the car sit until tax return time then go at it. We shal see.
