      Got a question for you fello roll overies, mine was on it's top for about 15 minutes, it was running until i turned it off. The guys i was with told me to not even try turning it over with out pulling my plugs and blowing all the oil and what ever else out. Oil did run out my intake, so i've gotta take that apart, but should i have to pull the plugs?

      I pulled them anyways and tried to crank it but it didn't crank, it just sounded like a someone turning a fan on or something, like the starter was just spinning really fast, i've never heard one make a sound like that before. I don't see what it wouldn't crank, right?

      Sounds like the bendix on the starter is jammed. Try putting a breaker bar on the crank bolt and turn the motor by hand to verify that nothing else is busted. I'd bet it's just the starter.

      Since it was running while on it's lid and you shut it down, the motor should be fine. Our '92 sat on it's side for the better part of 2 hours, and it fired right up after I re-filled the crankcase (never did pull the plugs). Ran rough and tossed codes for a little while until I got all the oil out of the MAF, intake and other areas that it didn't belong in. Motor ended up in BigCheck's truck continued to run fine.

      Well it was oil out the intake, just from the vent to the oil fill, so that's good. I did take the MAF out and cleaned it as best i could.

      I tried to start it again and i listened good this time, i can hear the bendix jump out and then the fan noise starts, i guess that maybe the benix may not be jumping far enough i don't know. But i could smell gas where the plug are out, so that's good i guess. The plugs didn't have oil or anything on them, so my guess is that the motor is fine, only damage was a loss of oil from the oil fill hose, crap that was good Mobile 1 syn too, lol.

      I'd say your right Jeff, i just turned the crank with no problem and as soon as i moved it i heard the bendix kind of let go of the fly wheel, so look like i'll be taking that baby off.

      ok guys well I don't know how well i fit into this but here it goes, had my X out at 12:30am screwing around in some gravel then went back onto the road and took the turn a little wide and in the grass so my lazy ass didn't have to make a U turn. Well apparently i should watch where im going, there was a 2-3 foot deep hole for a drainage pipe the my front right wheel sunk into. Well over she went as slow as a truck has rolled in the history of cars. Air bags went off when it hit even though i was going 5mph. Then it just rolled so slow I thought it was over when i landed upside down, then it finally started to roll again and proceeded down the embankment over 2 full times and landed on its wheels still running. Well... it was also full of crap and there was stuff falling all over oh, and this included blades for my moms food processor, so there flying around along with pool balls and a ton of boxes of stuff i was supposed to go drop off the next day. So lets sum this up, 5mph, hole, airbags to the face (nice and bloody), 2 full slow rolls with flying pool balls boxes and sharp blades, lands on wheels still running, horn stuck on at 12:30am... totaled.:roll:


      After i got it towed outta the huge hole and back to my house, windshield is shattered and the roof is crushed down even though it doesn't look like it:

      yeah it was such a slow roll it was ridiculous, the roof did crush in over my head that pic makes the thing look great, I couldn't open my door and had to get out the pass. side, the whole truck buckled both of the drivers side doors buckled out. Oh i forgot to tell everyone I had a plastic roll cage installed thats probably what kept the roof from caving in:rolleyes:

      Not sure if any of you remember Brian B (I think that was his handle). He drove a gold 2nd gen w/ SOHC. From Arkansas. He sort of faded away after he scored that 50's vintage (60's?) Ford pickup, red. Anyhow, I just found out via Facebook that he rolled his truck. He needed some surgery to fix an injured arm. He's replaced it with a Mounty like Don has, and also like turdle's son. 4.0 though.

      I've tried to get him to come over here and post some pics. I've seen them. Not purdy. Once again, someone gets into trouble in their 2nd gen and walks away to talk about it.

      Never rolled the ex. (knock on wood) I was in a Mitsubishi Pick up that rolled down the sand dunes in Feb. 3 complete rolls back onto the wheels, drove it home totaled. My old man was driving that day :)
      I flipped a pathfinder on its side at the junk yard. Drivers side down, after the crash i couldnt find the screw driver i used to start it with in the first place so i left it running like that to get another screwdriver. I climbed over the undercarage (thank god I remembered to put it in park cause of the drive shaft) only to find no exterior door handles. smashed the windows, jumped down into it and shut it off. I still got another 3 days of beating that thing before SOMEONE ran over an x-ray machine and tore out the oil pan. I'm not looking for a nomination because i didn't roll the Ex (the wood again), just thought I'd share:p:

      Where's the official list of members? I was wondering if DB1 was already a member and couldn't find the list... I could have sworn I saw one one time.

      Never thought id be here nominating myself, but here I am. :D Rolled it last night, I looked to see what time it was, then a curve in the road kinda ruined my night. Im fine, got out with barely any scratches and the truck is in pretty good shape considering. Sorry I didnt get more pictures, but I was a little more concerned about getting it flipped back up and driving it back to the house. So far the damage includes front fender, both doors, mirror, rocker panel, and a headlight. There are also some dents in the back fender and one up towards the roof in the back. No broken glass! suprisingly and im going to look at the suspension tomorrow.

      I disagree. That is nowhere stated in the rules and half of the trucks on here have only been flops.

      Yep, flops count. You just can't be a board member of the posse unless you went at least 1/2 roll (on the roof). However, you can count two flops (1/4 roll) for a total of 1/2.
