RE: [T3] MVVC Show

Sorry to hear about your trouble, at least it wasn't the T4 that you had
some money into!  Raby says he solved the cam problem but is running solid

Sounds like you had a piston burn though, excessive pressure in the case
pumps the oil out the back of the engine where there is no seal, Ive had
this happen but caught it right away and was still able to drive several
hours on 3 cylinders with the bad cyl injector unplugged. Perhaps you got
something into the oil?  You weren't using Synthetic by chance were you?

No. it was my 3 year old sweep the garage floor t-3 engine. The t-4 was 
pulled due to either a flat cam or a couple of bad hydro lifters. Still need
tear into it and find out which.
