exactly how happened. i was trying to torque the cover down in sequence with a new gasket so it would quit leaking. didnt leak after i broke the bolt and the guy i old it to barely knew how to ride (bought without test ride and rode it home in the rain) let alone do any work inside the engine.

I had a 60s chrysler that would do this on really hot days. I think it was vapor lock, extra gas, or driving somewhere without stop and go traffic, made it go away.

The car in question was my dad's, not mine, but the story is real. The weirdest part is it never did anything like it again, so I'm guessing it was probably just some crud in the tank.

lmfao, I love this story. I had a much similar instance recently when I was driving my bf's ford five-hundred home. What's worse is I took it on a back road to get home and the triple A driver passed me and calls 20 minutes later saying he couldn't find my location (I was going N not S silly).

In case you were wondering, it was the alternator that caused my 240 to act like that. So if that lil amp/battery light starts acting up like a cunt, better check that alternator
