    I gotta back track with the engine, because I feel a bit like a drama queen.:{. Trying to decipher the picture on the inspection camera in daylight, I really thought the engine was toast. It was only after we pulled the head that the truth was revealed.

    Under the carby, Mr Nissan had fitted a a sheet metal air deflector, about the size of a small plastic film canister. About half of the deflector is cut away. This was to make sure every cylinder received the right amount of fuel air mixture.

    The cuts made in the deflector are right angle with bugger all radii. So with time the metal has cracked and dropped into the engine. The sheetmetal pieces have been smashed, folded and pounded flat by the valves and piston crown. The big gouge I thought was in the cylinder wall turned out to be a reflection of part of the debris on top of the piston.

    I really did think it was bits of the valves. Hopefully the engine builder can check every thing and we can get it going with minimal cost, so I can afford the front locker.

    Awesome News Craigstar, Lock Her Up Brother
    Amazing how tough real old engines are at munching goodies unfortunately up and spitting them out
    Once had a Quadrajet carby underside bolt mistakenly loose get sucked in and straight out of a 350 modded FJ40 cylinder, didn’t sound sexy at all but kept pulling wheel stands for some 12 mountain months thereafter

    You will adapt, no one has died in melb from wearing a mask for the last 4 months. Think of it as personal protection.

    True but hasn't stop it either in Melbourne so it seems, it should be my call 2 decide when I feel the need 2 protect myself and loved ones not when grubbament tries 2 force it upon me.

    Each 2 their own I guess *L*

    Just as much to protect others as yourself as can have it without knowing as recently shown . . Just went down to pick up some pizza and about 20 hoodlems inside and out no masks or care for distancing whatsoever, will be a bloody battle with so many with this attitude damit. .

    Masks helped immensely when Vic was at the brunt of it. Tide turned after they were made compulsory.

    Don't forget 99% of the time , the masks only work when a sick person is wearing it as it mostly captures the droplets ... So you wearing one only when you decide to protect "your self " is a waste of time as you're protecting nobody , unless you're sick your self.

    Interesting perspective, I think we are at opposite sides of the universe right now. Maybe the wearing of masks would be easier for some if the 'gubberment' sent out cheques or maybe free 'telly's' to compensate for the inconvenience? Or they simply multiplied the fines 10 fold to enforce what is clearly a positive way forward? At the end of the day it is your choice, however there are tangible consequences coming really quick, so if you have that sort of idle cash floating around, I guess you are ok to not wear a mask and stick the middle finger up at everyone else who is following the scientifically based directive of the State Medical Officer.

    Me. I am a little bit self centred like you; I am in a high risk group, I have a daughter with a new borne, another high risk group, my wife is an aged care worker helping people in their final stages of life, a critical risk group, and I simply want to be able to go back to work, something i have not had the luxury of since March 3 2020, and NO GUBBERMENT hand-out either, so yeah, its personal to me, just as it is personal to just about every other person trying to get to the other side of this pandemic with the least damage. I urge you to reconsider your position and abide by the instruction, it won't hurt a bit.
