cracked my head....

hey all i havent really typed much on here for a while cause i got a new job and ive been working my @$$ off to make all kinds of money for christmas ... but any way....

i was driving to an appointmant for work and i was going to pass some trucks on 395 in adelanto ( in the 2 mile passing lane.) and my truck started to over heat and i tried to get back into town so i can check the water, and i blasted my heater to try to cool it down. then before i could even see town my check engein light came on and i was forced to pull over. then that is when the worst happened smoke started to barrel out from under the hood. so i opened my hood up... and smoke came right into my face. so i called my mom. my dad ended up coming out w/ a 5 gallon jug of water... we put more water into the radiator and tried to start it back up.... NO GO..!!! the enguin wouldnt start. the starter was kicken over but the enguin wasent kicken.. so then my dad said that we had to tow me 30 miles back to home, in the dark, w/ a strap, on the side of the road..... well we started to go ... he said to keep my flashers on but not my head lights so that we could try to save the batery as much as we can... then he towed me back to hesperia from adelanto... that was a chore in a half, trying to not run into him, brake at the right time, try not to get the strap raped around my tire... man it sucked.. but we did it.... we got back and left the truck in the front yard and went to bed.....

The next morning the truck started up.... but the enguin was shaking really bad my oil was milkey and their was water spitting out of the tale pipe...

OHHHHHHHHHHHHH S#$%

i said.... i either cracked my block, head, or blew my head gasket.... so we took the truck down to our mechanic that saterday.... but getting that thing on the trailer was another chore.... it had no bower i felt like i was driving a 4 banger... (no effence) i think a 4 banger has more power then my truck did like that... but 2 1/2, 3 weeks later i call my mechanic he saisone of my heads was cracked so they bought a core .. a used head.. then sent them into the shop to get new pistons and springs put in them... then i should get it back this thursday or friday... so now my truck will probably have better timeing and more horse power...

so it came out kinda in the mittle.... better for worst...

ok now that you all are probabley 45 years older then you were when you started the story..

thats all folks....

Sorry about that. You have been doing a lot of work on that truck. It's nice to know you are fixing it.
