HeyCharger Posted September 2, 2006 Share Posted September 2, 2006 On my way to The Rusty Iron Rally, this happened.Driving along flat-out at 60kph, 36mph I heard a rythmic sort of clicking sound, something like when something is continually hit by a fan blade.I kept driving for a few miles, then the sound got a little louder.I noticed the oil pressure had dropped from about 38psi down to about 15psi.As I pulled into a truck parking bay, the noise got INCREDIBLY MUCH LOUDER.When I was pulling up the noise was deafening, but also intermittent, but was knocking far more than it was quiet.I shut the poor old girl down and had it towed to a repair place.Probably Tues they will drop the oil pan and tell me the bad news.All indications from friends with knowledge is that she's let a crankshaft bearing go.Any thoughts?Thanks.
