Man mm, Im so sorry for your derailed adventure with your brother. I am glad you are safe and warm at home. All things happen for a reason and I'm sure when the initial bummer wears off karma will make it up to you. It could have been worse. Relax and listen to the stream tonight. Peace, Brother.

its actually a after market head and the block was shaved down when my buddys rebuilt it and there was a spacer or something like. I do have the manual but theres a lot of stuff not orioginal now. A good friend of the family is a mechanic and will see if its worth whatevers wrong.

I'm sorry that happened. I was feeling your pain when reading that. You just can't prepare for stuff like that to happen. Good luck with your truck. Everything does happen for a reason
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

im guesiing its a blown head gasket or valve gasket etc,or you may have a cracked oil line if it was more serious the engine would have blown(valve,lifters,springs etc) if the truck has an oil coolerthat could be the source as well if these guys are asmessed upasyou say itspossible they forgot toreconnect something or and this is common they use gasket sealer instead of an actual gasket and gasket sealer ,very common shortcut,i suggest they do a simple comprsession test

well she's finally gone and out of the garage. Started it up for the first time in almost a year and took it on a few last runs up and down the street before scraping it for a lousy $300... it wasn't running to pretty.

took forever doing a title search on it... it felt good going for a last ride but felt pretty bad seeing it go. Lots of good memories and a few not so good with the truck... last good trip it went on was 2,610 miles around the north east for 9 shows on the Furthur fall 2011 tour - 87 toyota 4Runner

sorry to hear about your troubles !
you should have put some slick 50 and some heavy gear lube into your oil maybe you could have slowed the leak or plugged it up.
back in '02 on my way to cleveland for the other ones show at the gund i burned my truck up when the freeze plug had a pin hole
i had to abandon the vehicle and hitch to the show and home
good luck with your truck ! car problems really suck on showdays !

Aw, I'm sorry for your loss!! You sure had some adventures with that one, it's sad to see them finally bite the dust after that long.
