Re: Would You Use it?

As long as it seals, i'd guess the head/block corrosion in our life time would be minimal at best. In my thinking. From the original pictures, the crush rings don't completely cover the open areas,...

A somber day. Remembrance for those that paid the ultimate price. Bless them.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

This doesn't look like a rebuild motor, not even new pistons and rehoned cylinders. Maybe a go cat issue, maybe I would not. I hope you get this solved. Hate crooks. I'd be inclined to be...

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Picture is small. Very quick though.

Motor is leaking into the cylinder. Not sure how that is relevant to the water pump. When you run hot maybe.

I'm not clicking on a pdf nor should anyone here. Besides it doesn't matter. Best of luck!!!

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Water pumps aren't putting water in the cylinder, one thing at a time. Only way water gets into the combustion chamber ever is a head gasket or a crack. Best of luck.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

I agree. I think there is a lot of issues going on here for a rebuild. They keep changing. One thing at a time would be my suggestion. I might think the block was never cleaned or checked (for a...

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

Good luck east or west. You have a computer or a phone or like stuff? I agree but not real. Change isn't going to happen quickly.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

You also. I edited my post as you were posting :) Still hopeful a gasket change might do it. Milky oil is subject. Think not


I'm going off this is a total rebuild. Clean tested block.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Try a new overbore best gasket and spray tac it. Then go from there.

A block sealer may work too. Not that you spent 9k on a rebuild.

You may will still have issues. It's life dude.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

You might have a internal issue. Sorry


Buy a set of new gaskets for 30$ and run them out. If it's still the same, well. Cheaper then a new rebuild at this point. If still bad, well... 30$ is...

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Could be just a head gasket issue. Best gaskets are the best.


Could be something else. Where is your rebuilder at this point? Not involved? Usually not how it's done. You won't see a crack or...

Re: How to find mechanic

Tell us where you are. If you are close someone might come by and help. It's a pain but not to hard. No modern mechanic will want to mess with it. Maybe a small shop.

Re: RIP: Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond)

Ha I get the reference GB. Bet she's a amazing person. Anyone that would put up with the likes of most of us here would have to be.

The series was directed by David Von Ancken.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Maybe a 60 or 80 over would have been better? Block was pressure tested?

Re: Checking an Ignition Ballast Resistor

What flatjack said. 4 volts at the coil is best.


My understanding is it does matter how you wire the coil +/- poles.
