no worries, but i dont think i'll wreck it just yet, i might try source a cheap EF motor if it'll fit.

by the way i just aquired a bottle of PRO-MA MBL 8 concentrated oil additive, will this make it ok to drive my car if absolutely necessary?

nope, if the bearing wants to go all the way aint nothing gonna stop it. I saw a Windsor in a Fairlane go once, made some really cool banging noises.
