I headed off today with the family on a 10 vacation with our 5th wheel. Going up a Lookout Pass in Montana, traveling at about 35 mph in 2nd gear/about 2500 RPM (I got stuck behind 2 semi's passing each other) and I heard a momentary rattle and then BOOM!! Smoke everywhere. I pull off the road and knew what happened.
A fist size hole in the side of #8..
I picked up lots of parts off the road while waiting for a tow.
While waiting too I called my buddy at the shop who found a complete engine out of a 99 at Spalding Auto (wrecking yard) I can get for about $1200.. It has 142,000 on it. Is this a good option?
