Re: 31 AA Radiator Cap Blows Water at High RPM

Re: 31 AA Radiator Cap Blows Water at High RPM

Sounds like the classic leaking head gasket. As long as the engine is doing light work it is happy. As soon as the engine is working harder the cylinder pressure increases and the hot gasses bypass...

Re: motor locked up

too late for advice now, glad you fixed the problem. The incline could have been an advantage...the objective is to get engine turning faster than the starter. That action will screw the bendix out...

I think you will find reply #13 by JacksonIII is on the right track! The head gasket is allowing hot gasses to bypass the gasket and heat the water. It only happens when you ask the engine to work a...

Re: ignition timing

A leaky head gasket won't show up until you ask the engine to do some work, like up a grade or pushed faster than 35 or so. Block the wheels in high gear and put a strain on the engine while your...
