Yeah, but I'd rather be locked up in traffic on my way to make a living, than to be locked down at home with no income.

Bought mine with 60K miles, and traded it with 113K miles. Daily driver for four years. Needed nothing the entire time, just changed the oil every 4K miles.

Count me in with bearing clearance. You can try a high volume pump and perhaps a thicker oil.

Cam bearings is a possibility, but given the info on the crank, that's where I hedge my bet.
