Well, it finally happened--I blew up the BD240 inline 6 in my '61 Travelette. It's my own dang fault too. So the way I see it is that this is a 53 year old truck and it's going to leak a little oil. Well, that little oil leak has gotten bigger and bigger and so I decided that over Memorial Day weekend, I'd drop the transmission and see if I couldn't find the leak. Well, on Wednesday the 20th on my way to work, I guess the motor decided that it couldn't wait one more day and it blew. The odd thing is that there was plenty of oil on Tuesday night and no oil on Wednesday morning... at 5am... on the side of I-40. I got it over to Floyd Eason's shop in Del City (Floyd is about the nicest man available) and it looks like it is time for a new motor. I am going to rebuild the 240 as a project, but I don't have the time/money to do it now--especially if I have to source pistons or rods or any of the hard to find 6 cyl stuff. So Floyd hooked me up with a 345 and T-34 5 speed transmission. I spent the better part of Memorial Day week getting everything ready and dropped into the truck.
