So, where do I start? The day we found Stinky? Over a year ago we dragged Stinky out of her sleeping spot after a 30-40 year slumber, and miraculously got her H engine started. She never really ran that well. We had some work done on her and were warned it was a temp fix. The latest Failure of the head gasket on the worlds crappiest aluminum head released a series of issues.
She wouldn’t start, nothing we did helped. UNTIL! We blasted each cylinder with PB Blast. And bam. We got her running.
But missing #5, and #6… Now some may think this is horrible, but has been Stinkys “thing” and so we got her running well-ish and went out. Usually at around the 15 minute mark she lights up and runs like a champ.. So lets go! Now, we are not sure who to blame here. But “Jimmy” made a comment that she seemed to be getting ready to smooth out.. Oh boy! With in seconds, BAM, CLANK, RATTLE, POP, POP.. Not one of those sounds is what you want to hear. But all of them together.. Well, we all know it aint good. So what did we do? Pulled out the camera of course. And for gods sake don’t turn it off. We will never get it started again. Here is her last ride! FULL THROTTLE..
It was a slow run home. But pop, popping ,rattle rattling onto the trailer and into the barn. WOOOHOOO! We are gonna rebuild us an engine! You may all be wondering why i am not upset? Well, its all part of the culture, and really? Stinky? Running on a original engine from 1937 after sitting in a rat infested barn for 40 years? And now, Stinky gets to get the engine she wants. Just one request. That it smells just as bad as the old one!
