|Comment||Barrie, thank yu so much for your insight. I will examine the old crank. there was a substaintal amount of damage, The oil pan has 3 holes in it (all up high probably the reason I did not see a lot of oil on the ground. I do have a small hole in the block but I was able to weld it succesfully. Thank you again for all the insight. It is a shame but it is a wonderful car and it will run again, hopefully not to ever see this issue again.|
