Whadda ya gonna do?

So, Sunday...

Driving home from getting groceries for the week. Weather was nice, cool breeze at 8am. I have to drive through an area with stop signs and the speed is posted at 25 mph. I am running 15 mph, in no rush. I take off slow from an intersection, and a large rattle from under the Jeep. Ok now, “rattle” is not enough of a word, but I don’t have another one big enough.

I coast to the side and park under a tree. I just sit, enjoying the breeze. 2 minutes in to my relaxation and melt down stall, a guy comes out and says I dropped my drive shaft. Judging by the oil slick in my rear view mirror, much more than a driveshaft, lol.

I get out and take a peek. Yep, crank rod put a nice little slit in the oil pan as it smashed into the block, taking out a cookie sized chunk.

So far, I have a buddy that will get me towed to where ever I need to go, a buddy that is going to do what he can to get me back on the road, and another dude with a rebuilt 4.0 that I am going to pick up Wednesday.

Life is good.

Nice to have friends . . . as well as a good attitude. Good luck with the overhaul.

Depending where in L.A. you are, if you need parts, Sgt. Jeep in Rosamond, near Mojave. is a large dismantler/seller. Tommy is a good guy to deal with.

Sorry Jon, but with that great attitude, You'll at least have a block and head to start building your own 4.0 how you want to slide back in.

Thanks, man.

It is a newly rebuilt 4.0 built by a builder with great reviews. Apparently the guy who has it has decided to go bigger, a Hemi swap.

One good thing about it is that is comes with the ECU, harness and many of the accessories. I already have basically new accessories so I get to pass these on to a fellow Jeeper that is in need of them. Feels like I am helping donate a kidney, lol.

That is what life is all about. Do good, and good will come to you. Kind of a spin on the old adage “Do into others”, or Ghandi’s “Be the change you want to see in the world”, although not quite as well known. ������

It really isn’t difficult being a Cool Human, in fact it takes very little effort to help someone in need of a hand.

Plus, Jon’s YJ is way too nice to leave sitting for long.

I had to look back and see if I really wrote apple! Lol

Growing up as a redneck, we always said crank rod. I know it is a connecting rod but wanted to look like a vet. One that I can’t do is dizzy.

So what I got done today. It looks like nothing but for me it was a lot.

Next episode will be at SoCal’s.

I have seen literally dozens of connecting rods kicked out the side of blocks or cases over the years, virtually every type of engine, manufacturer, and fuel type.

V8, V6, (even a couple of V4’s!), V-Twins, in-line 4, 5, 6 cylinders (never seen a ventilated straight 8 that I can recall, even though I built a few Buick’s “back in the day”), horizontally opposed VW, Porsche, Corvair, as well as Continental and Lycoming.

I have seen connecting rods hanging out the side of V12 and 16 locomotive engines that destroyed the block, crank, four or five cylinder assemblies, and even cylinder heads. Sometimes right off idle at 300-400 RPM.

Carnage comes in many forms. I prefer to call it Positive Crankcase Ventilation.

And @JonStevens is gonna get a terminology lesson this weekend!

Safe and sound, made the trip up the hill, and only the cylinder head fell off on the 10 somewhere. 😂

Any quality 10w30 after the break in. I personally run Mobil 1 in differing viscosities in a number of my vehicles, including my YJ. If you prefer a Dino based oil rather than Syn (as some people do), so be it.

The lubricating properties of the Syn, particularly on cold starts, are worth the price of admission for me. I run it to protect the rather intricate internals in the below pictured Toyota, and those V8’s aren’t cheap. It routinely gets winged to the moon, particularly on track days, and oil samples always come back stellar for shear.

Is this one of those terminology lessons you were talking about? We'll have Jon saying Dizzy in no time.
