I had my hand on the roll bar while trying to start and felt fuel. Looked at chassis and noticed fuel had been slung on it. Took motor out along with carb. Placed fingers over cab and placed in water blowing on fuel line. NOT a bubble. Now put fingers over motor and noticed air coming from front bearing. It that all she wrote for that motor?
Sounds like the classic signs of a front bearing going out. If it's leaking that bad you'll need a new one. You can get a new block and bearings for only $14.
That is not an option. I don't rebuild them. 100. bucks. Brand new one. The way I look at it is simple. Soon as one thing fails it's a chain effect. The motor lasted a year. I do have this motor. Will it work with a big block kit?

Yes sir it does. I have watched your video's. NICE I must say. I figure the motor has done it's tour of duty, lol. Find one on E-bay for 118.00 to my door with shipping. Also will pick up three shoe clutch for 21. along with the tool to make putting clutch shoes on easy 7. (priceless) I do have a NEW associated 4.60 nitro truck motor. thinking about using it, what do you think?
