She let me down...

Go down

She let me down...

Post by riveted on Wed May 15, 2013 5:14 pm

Well my Corona let me down last week. Driving home from work and all the sudden the motor starts missing and running out of power. Ended up coming home on the hook. Turns out the exhaust valve on the rear cylinder hit the piston. The timing chain jumped a tooth or something. I was able to find all the parts to fix it and dropped the head of at the machine shop. Hopefully I will have it all back together in a week or so.

Well I forgot to update the thread here. I ended up replacing both timing chains and tensioners and had the head rebuilt. I have put about 500 miles on the car and it's running great. I was worried it was gonna leak oil because when I removed the timing cover it messed up the oil pan gasket pretty good. But all is well and not a drop on the ground. Anyway here are the photos...
