78 dodge beaver with 440,cutting out scott 11-22-11  
Good morning all,

i have a 78 (79) dodge beaver sportsman with a 440 in it, and this is the problem im having after having driven it up and down the western coast. when first started and put into drive it will drive a few minutes then stall out and lose all power, i also have a loud knocking sound, seems to be coming from passanger side valve area and i have a decant amount of oil in my air filter pan. it usually starts again after its sat for awhile but seems to start sputtering if i start to stop... any help would be great, this is our house... thank you. oh its got an edenbrook(sp) carb btw.

Anyway you have (90% Chance)a serious bottom end problem, valve hitting piston, spun bearing and so on.
Good Luck
