HEY EVERYONE
WELL I WAS RUNNING ABOUT THE BEST I DID ALL SEASON LAST SAT NIGHT-- UNTELL I LOSS ALL MY OIL PRESSURE THEN POWER.(GOT HIT AND SPUN AROUND IN #2 TURN ON THE 4TH LAP-- THEN GOT VERY HOT)
TURNS OUT I CRACKED MY BLOCK ON THE EXH. MANIFOLD SIDE BACK BY THE #4 CYLINDER AREA. THE ENGINE IS STILL RUNNING GOOD UN-TELL I LOOSE ALL MY OIL AND THE PRESURE/POWER DIVES.
HERE'S MY QUESTION IS THERE ANY WAY TO CHECK FOR INTERNAL (BEARING--ROD) DAMAGE WITH OUT TEARING IT APART??? AND IF THERE IS NO DAMAGE INSIDE COULD I GET BY WITH A "BAND-AID" (JB WELD) FOR THESE LAST 3 RACES OF THE SEASON. NO TIME OR MONEY TO REBUILD TELL AFTER THE SEASON ENDS??

the best thing to do is pull oil pan and check for play in rod berrings. if no play you can prob, get by for rest of season, take to welding shop and have welded then put some jb on the top just for small leaks. good luck
