Dear God!!! Don't run that!!!!

Sounds like it spit out a shim to me as well... the sound like rattling pocket change gives it away.
If it is a shim don't be surprised if you need a new cam.

that sounds gorgeous... uhh so i should replace a few valves and you think theres bad lifters too?? and possibly a cam.. im just tryin to get this asshole running for now, ill be doing a complete bottom end reinforcement and head rebuild around summer but for now i need it to get to work and back -_-

im gonna need to drive it to my friends house about 3 miles away to get into a heated garage with tools.. would that be horribly bad to drive it that distance? we should have the valve cover off today.

Tis up to you dude. If I were you though I might want to consider towing it since every revolution of that cam is going to increase the possibility of damage to the head or it's components. From the sound it's already "bad", so it's just a question of how willing you are to risk driving it from "bad" to "worse".

Feel lucky punk?

It could trash the whole engine... lots of metal getting shredded and the material getting dumped right back into the main system.

most definately, idk if the whole engine is locked up, probably not but there was definately something traveling in the head that stopped it, wont turn over, i got really really lucky...havent been able to find a cheap engine anywhere and i found this guy on craigs list in my area, has an engine out of his old rusted n/a 89 that he just freshened up, i towed it to his shop last night, should be done in a couple weeks.

engine:350 install:250 metal head gasket: 100$

new engine 700bux out the door, good deal or what!

on another note...i do not want this wing on my car, think someone would wanna buy it?? how much do ya think its worth lol.. its in good condition


yes dont make fun of the bosch, i just bought the car..needs to get painted but needs to run first. i purposely didnt buy bosch spark plugs just because of this lol! that and bosch sucks.

thats not the stock supra wing. maybe you can find someone to trade you. i would say 100 + shipping sounds fair. or 100 out the door is more fair. either way. looks like a wing off a damn eclipse. I wouldn't want that on my supra anyhow.

Personal opinion after hearing that noise, take out a 45mm pistol, walk up to the car slowly from behind as to not scare it. Then do a nice double tap on the engine its dead. You also have to realize that with that noise being as loud as it is may not be the top end. Metal transmits sounds so it could be anywhere. I think you have the right idea replacing it will be cheaper than rebuilding. With the prices you showed there are cheaper places to find engines I know a guy in Dallas that has a 7MGTE for like 400 bucks ECU and everything.
