Tempo down, Tempo down.

Have been super busy all summer. Which is why I have been gone from the Hooniverse. Busy with commercial fishing mostly. But the bad news... I drove the Tempo from Oregon to Alaska with a trunk and cabin full of my belongings, returning home from a successful first year at Oregon State University. What I thought was a minor oil leak from a bad PCV filter gasket, turned out to be blow-by. The piston rings were bad, and after about 2,600 miles they ate up the block. An incredible amount of oil blow-by now exists, to the point of being pushed out through both PCV gaskets, the valve cover gasket, and being funneled into the air filter box.

I bought a new block, just haven't had the time or funds to install it.

Tempo will return. Ten times stronger than before...

Did you happen to buy a more interesting block than what was there before?

There is no block more interesting than what was in it before. ;)
