i would not be surprised at all
lol my neighbor came over to look at it when I bought it and noticed one of the bolts to the alternator was loose.. (it was spinning while the engine was running) turned off the engine and there was NO nut on the backside and I pulled it and it slipped it right out.. that thing could have wobbled out hit the fan and freaking turned into a bullet when we were looking under the hood. ~true story
I already pulled and cleaned it.. pulled the metered (brass fitting) today and made sure is was clean.. also the inlet on the manifold side is good.
The small diameter of the orifice (fitting) seems to be the bottleneck in removing the excess pressure/vapor.
Could I just get or make a new fitting... or even retapp the valve cover for a fitting with a larger inside diameter?
I think this is just band-aiding I have a bad feeling this motor is toast.. just drive it until it blows?? i dunno its not my dd its more of a hobby.. but i want it to be driven without too much worry. Never blew an engine before so i dont know what to expect and pretty sure i dont want it to happen on the freeway
