Big setback…

So guys, I had a big big setback on this project this week. We had undertaken a road trip to pick up medication for my partner, and suffered engine failure on the way home. It lost power for a short while at around 2700 RPM and made a weird noise which I didn’t initially perceive to be engine related, and by the time I had discovered that the noise could be changed with throttle angle, the more immediate symptom became a ventilated block followed my loss of oil pressure. First engine lasted 234K (admittedly not so easy) miles.
