Early 80’s Chevy 2.8 in a s-10 pickup either an 83 or 84, if you hold the pedal to the floor with the car in neutral will the valves float? Or will something fly apart? The engine is in good condition and runs good, and has about 80k miles on it.
There is a guy at work that does mowing and he always door dings people with that truck so we were thinking of playing a little joke on him by wiring the throttle wide open so when he starts the truck we startle him. We have already jacked up and blocked the rear wheel, tied pop cans to the undercarriage, and lit a smoke bomb under his hood and told him his truck was on fire and he came running out and emptied a fire extinguisher under the hood.
We probably wont actually do this, but the subject came up, will valves float?
We already thought he might panic and pop the truck into gear and go flying into someone so we probably wont do it, so at this point its more of a technical discussion.
