Well on the 12 mile trip home a few mishaps, water pump pulley fell off the rocker arm bolt worked itself loose and the rocker fell off I limped the car 8 miles on 3 cylinders at a top speed of 25 up hill I got home and started the tear down and found what I suspected with the rocker arm laying to the side I pulled the bolt out and noticed that it was stretched I grabbed a used one I got from the head I got from the junkyard tossed her back together and made sure my bolts were all torqued to 20 ft lbs and no more tick!!! For weeks I couldnt figure out the god awful rattle and tick and thats all it was... one stretched bolt. In other news both of , y front brake calipers are locking up. Does any one know of a good way to fix them on the cheap side or should i just replace them?

The front calipers are still pretty cheap, I would replace them.
