Bye Bye to the good ole' AMC 304...

May 2004: Well, I knew it was going to happen, I just didn't think it would be so soon. Not more than 2 weeks after getting the new carb installed, the engine let go.

 

Notice the bluish-white smoke shooting out the passenger side tailpipe. The oil leak got worse and worse.

I was actually in this stop when the engine died, and would never restart again...it took several hours to pull the jeep down the creek with the hand come-along. We got it back to the ramp, where we pulled it out with my truck. Too much oil, and not enough compression.

More smoke the same day. (This was taken in mid May)

Movie clip of the smoke. (And a cool climb)
