Well I am happy my lower intake is not leaking any more, I ficed it yesterday. Changing the oil, Small metal circular ( kinda ) Chunks came out, VRY VRY Small, And if I countined the circle from the chunk there is no way!! It would be a ring. Now I am curious as to what the hell this can be, I am almost 99% sure it was sticking to my plugs, So it was not aluminam ( SP? ) Now I wonder if it is time for a new block, :( ... Well. I wish I had a pic for ya, but i don't... Let me know guys thanks

Anytime you can see metal in the oil that's NOT good. What kind of engine? If its a 351W and you haven't modified the oiling system in anyway, you can almost bet a years worth of paychecks it's bearing material. Better pull it out and check it while it can still be repaired cheaply.
