Just a short while ago I finished fixing my exhaust and did an oil change. Both as a little maintenance before a road trip that will be about 1700 miles. As I drained the oil back into the jug I decided to use a strainer. And little pieces of metal showed up. It appears this road trip will be this engine’s last hurrah before the rebuild. Luckily I found an engine on Craigslist for $250 that I can put in so I can have a striker engine built in place of this one.
