    Shyster, that 6,666 badge your wearing has turned you into a genuine psychic.
    Same exact thing happened to me in a 1974 Plymouth Valiant (slant 6 motor also, nearly identical car). Lost oil pressure going down the interstate at 70mph, and my Plymouth was valiant no more.:(

    Edit: That vehicle had special memories for me, for it was my first car, and the first and only car that I ever ruined.

    Accidentally thought it was a 66 Briggs
    I checked while rebuilding the engine. Its a 1972 Briggs

    Pictures will be updated soon, or I will make a new thread on how to rebuild an engine.

    79/1000 inch of wear in the rings caused excessive amounts of white/blue smoke during operation. So it was completely overhauled, with a 10/1000 inch oversized rings and piston. Compression is like new, and its outputting quite nice power. Very clean performance too. Its getting quite better fuel efficiency, which is good too

    Long live real American Power :D
