Cristine is going to get open heart surgry

Yes her motor has to come apart. Went to take her for a drive two weeks ago ,got down the road &she made some valve train noise. Oil pressure was fine but I brought her back. Few days later I drain her oil, oil out of tank real dark but no metal drain the motor same. I take down the sump plate, damm gold mine!! Her motor was rebuilt 15 years ago, it never skipped a beat till last year when I took her to a shop in Santa Fe.Went in for valve adjustment end up with a broken head stud ( Raceware stud ) oh by the way if you want us to repair it that will be $3000 . So I rented a shop for for two weeks $200, relaced them Supertec studs. When I took off the valve covers the insides were covered with dirt some in the cam towers.I had flushed cleaned everything, thought we dodged the bullet . Here' some pic's of her intercooler. More later
