Ok, so my dad's here and he went out and took a look at things. I think I also have a little better idea of what went wrong. Basically, something wasn't rebuilt right with the crankshaft, something of a wrong size (key?) was put on somewhere, and at a certain point it kept spinning but didn't spin anything but itself because it had worn out due to the wrong size, and a bunch of stuff kind of got wratched up as a result.

We're going to try some kind of patch job on this in the next day or two here to see if we can get it running again, I'll see if I can get some pictures of the damage to clarify for lack of my better choice of words.

One thing I'm wondering is if anybody could tell me which cylinder is the #1 on this car? (If you're facing from the front of the car?)
