I guess on my way to work, my oil drain plug leaked my oil out, and I didn't see it happening. Needless to say I got a real nice rod knock. As soon as it happened I shut her down and got my
Buddy to tow it. Today I ran some Lucas oil treatment in it and flushed the oil and and didn't see a ton of shavings, just some. Started her up and she seems to run okay. Should I expect the rod knock to come back within a couple days? Or may I or kinda gotten away with it for now?

Find a spare "D" they are a dime a dozen till then drive it till it dies. Then start it again and drive it some more. I have a friend who drove 200 miles before he noticed he had forgotten his oil cap when he did an oil change needless to say he had no oil left in the motor. But it continued to run for a few years after that.

The damage that is done won't go away, but you can mask it for a while as you prepare a backup plan. As said before, source a spare motor or just a block, go through and rebuild it, throw it in when the time is right. Bam, brand new Honduh.

Y7, Z6, ZC, D15B, B7, so on so forth. Broaden your horizon for a block and you shall find salvation. Unless metal shavings have chewed your head up I see no reason why you can't slap her on any D16/D15 block and call it a day. If you really want the Y8 I would suggest listed block with your Y8 head combo temporarily and build current Y8 block on the side.

I'm aware of the compatibility on head/block combos, but just can't find anything for sale haha. Just gotta keep looking.
