Wasn't that the truck on ebay with the engine knock?

Yea I first saw it on Ebay. Sounds like a dropped valve seat.

1998 was the last year of the E9's in the states correct?

Just glad you could save it from a boat ride or chopper.

I thought I saw it in the TNT or TBG, said it had a spun bearing.

as long as the truck it is not all rusted out, engine rebuild or swap is easier than body work just ask my painter going on 118 days to paint a hood and a cab with no rust repair

No one would have the love affair with each and every piece I've collected over the past 40 plus years hell I sold a half dozen cars this year that I bought new in the early / mid 70's, raced and parked in the barn. l still fight he urge to buy em back. I've been agonizing the past 4 months finalizing the sale of my '51 Vicky and my '72 Valkry.

Told every body in my family to put an ad on BMT for the adoption of my trucks and "stuff". Paul

It seems you'll need balls to have a ball with it.

E9 overhaul kits aren't for an avarage pocket.

Can you buy just a bearing shells set and grind the shaft?

$4300 for a complete kit doesn't sound bad.

I just remember seeing PAI one on the net for something like $9000.

Good luck on putting the engine back together.
