Broke down headed to B'ham

Post by hly3rd on Sun Feb 26, 2012 11:41 am

I was headed to Tuscaloosa to meet a guy that is selling me a ramp truck. About 10 miles inside Alabama the square starting running like crap. Pulled off the exit and found number 1 valve spring broke. Dead in the water as we speak. The guy is coming with my truck, but that's about 2 1/2 hour wait on the side of the road. On the bright side, at least it's a ramp truck! I'll tow myself home. I guess I'll be removing a head tonight. I will use the money I won at the show yesterday to fix it! cheers

That's funny, Around 1989, I broke a valve spring going to B'ham in my 74 too...... and I think it was the same one. Suspect

I think I caught it in time. Rebuild the head and be good to go again. What sucks is that they were new heads I installed about 2500 miles ago.

I think the car did it on purpose to keep from going into B'ham. Wink
