Got my ass handed to me Tue & Wed at work
Came in for clutch pedal to floor , clutch hydraulic system hosed,install master cylinder Very Happy
Thought easy hydraulic system fix and bleed - wrong pale
then when installing slave found broken grease tube for throwout bearing, bell housing packed with grease , brake fluid & clutch debris - the entire clutch & clutch brake & transmission input shaft also toast Sad Sad Sad Sad
Ended up with stiff sore back Evil or Very Mad which slowed me way down & took me an additional day longer to do job ,
punished my ass Evil or Very Mad

Day off Thursday - slept in until 11:30 with sore back , lol
Decided to do something with all these damn broken space heaters I have in the breezeway since it finally got cold out.

Friday and Saturday worked out in the driveway on the F-150 project tearing down the motor
Toasty 27- 30 degrees out and the moisture in the air hose freezing at times

Found failed left timing chain tensioner , Vtc solenoids , broken chain guides and excessive chain slack .
Left timing chain almost totally sawed into the oil pump and also sawing the engine block .
Surprisingly it hadn't jumped & still ran & drove , but was noisy
