I've assembled all the parts to repair the engine in my 2002 GT. In my driving enthusiasm I put a rod through the oil pan at 178,000 miles.

I'd really appreciate any input from those who have actually done it or know links to any articles, etc. Interested in mismatch in bolt-holes, any water lines under the manifold, attaching the front dress from my 2002.

The engine is a 1997 Lincoln 4V 4.6 (stroked to 5.0 all forged parts) that I'm using with 2V Patriot heads, Cushman Cams, etc. I'll put a list below.

Boys and girls, this 62 year-old guy is plowing new ground with the SOHC, but, I'm learning. Just don't want to go in totally ignorant.

Here's the parts on my little car:

• Aluminum Teksid Block Stroked to 5.0
• Patriot Stage 2 Heads
• Cushman Motorsports Stage 2.5 N/A cams
• Comp Valve Train

Thanks for the input!

Neverfastenough1 I couldn't afford it until I got my kid raised and got into sales where you can pick an amount of money you want to make, then go produce that much. You can give yourself a raise anytime you want to, that way. Here's the secret though, to be great in sales you don't have to be a good talker, you have to be a better listener, and use that to solve problems for the customer. Very different that what it was in the 1960,s.

We're making a trip in that car to Savannah in November. Is that too late to have some decent weather and shrimp?

I knew there was a catch, gotta get those kids out of the house, and possibly the wife , too, if I want any money. Two kids down, two about to turn 18 in year and a half :D. One about to turn 18 in 10 years :(. Ah, I am never gonna get there because I don't think the wife is gonna leave when I tell her its her time. As far as the weather goes, probably gonna rain on you, but maybe not. I have been to the beach in December one year and freezing the next. I hope your trip turns out well. I don't eat shrimp, but I am sure you can still get some fresh crustaceans still. If I were there, I would make some Low Country Boil, and you could have all the shrimp, yuk.

Hey NFE1,
Remember that kids don't get really expensive until they leave home! It's peanuts before then! Better start squirreling that lunch money away in your tool box as soon as possible!

Not eating shrimp, is that for religious reasons or just because they are just bottom feeding poop suckers?
