Had a motor mount break and cause a puncture in my oil filter and I'm leaking oil like a stuck pig gotta try to figure out how to fix it to get home. There is a napa here so I am gonna run up there. Any ideas?
Ok I tried to get a filter no good till tomorrow. We strapped the engine both directions I'll add the details tomorrow you guys might get a chuckle
Outta what we did. To get back from the gas station I wrapped the oil filter both directions an then wrapped it in 30foot of
Paracord very very tight. We shall are what happens tomorrow once I buy a few oil filters and we get to see in daylight
With a bottle jack and some blocks of wood, you can lift the engine and get a new mount in there I believe...it's been a while since I had an I-6 motor in mine. You're lucky that the fan didn't eat the radiator, too; that usually happens.
