Other weekend i hydrolocked it. no big deal- but shortly after blew the headgasket. then after ripping it apart relized what that rattling noice was when starting up the truck. TIMING chain guide is shot to shit lol.

So mean tim im getting a car to rip around and fixing engine and alot of other things!

gonna get biggr brakes, bigger shocks new u joints
new front leafs etc
Once i drop the gastank i can take a better look at the major rusted part and brainstorm best way to fix it.

heres a link to the hd pictures on facebook.
