Hot Roddus interuptus

So I was all set to keep working on my 54 dodge when the mild ticking in my 01 Saturn turns to a death rattle at about 157k miles. I check it out at home and I'm positive it's a rod. Any way I happen to have a 60k motor from the one I wrecked about 3 years ago. However, I loathe working in the engine compartments of front wheel drive cars.

On top of it all I managed to bend my cherry picker. I had the bright idea to use it to pull out some hedge stumps. Lets just says the stump won. Bent the upright, and almost ripped the jack mount off. No movement on the stump....

So I'll not be working on the 54 for a while. Hopefully It will be a quick swap, so I can get back on track with the 54. But not a real great week. Not in a bad mood though. Just not looking forward to this. Guess I'm overdue for an engine swap. Last one was over 7 years ago on my duster.
