Re: Engine died - guess what is wrong?

Update: Some type of oil pump failure. They are not exactly sure where it all started but an oil pump gear seized, scored the cases, metal shavings all throughout. Crank doesnt turn well. I would need a crank, bearings, cases, piston, gaskets, etc. Too much $ to be worth it. I will be parting the bi...
