Apparently there was a piece of bone that lodged between my bone and the "funny bone" nerve that he removed. It was the size of the tip of his pinky finger and they had to open up the hole in my arm to get it out 2 hrs later all cleaned up and loose particles all removed. "You've really beaten the shit out of that elbow haven't you" Just waiting on swelling to go down so I can work on regaining motion.

I was at his house prior to snowfall and the motor was inside the garage so I would imagine this wasn't his fault

Was in my garage from the time I picked it up until the video. Trans fluid looks great so I'm not sure how it has water in it

Oil filter looked like it was puking chocolate pudding. Got a "wrong number dude" when I called. Sure

I have a motor until a rod goes through the block Checking compression today. If that's ok I'm going to at least run it until it spits a bearing in the driveway I'll at least know everything else works that way.
