This is my first communication. I subscribed to the list shortly after
acquiring an 1980 Roadster and have found the wealth of knowledge amazing.
My technical and mechanical know how is I basic diy level, so please forgive
the possible ignorance in my request for help.
Here goes, The engine developed a 'knock' at the top, back, right of the
engine , difficult to tell exactly where. Whilst driving the engine failed,
leaving me with a nice blue cloud of smoke trailing behind the car and a
very nice rattle and clatter from the valve gear. I have been told it is
possibly a piston problem. Is this probably the case.
If so is it advisable for me to tackle a project of this nature given my
present level of experience?
I would appreciate any thoughts, suggestions and assistance.
