A teeny tiny blob of jb weld?
It needs a full engine rebuild anyway. Those pistons don't have much life left on them.... Also let the owner know that the only surefire solution is a full engine rebuild in the future.
Both!... Any tips on loosening the bolt, penetrating fluid and or heat?
Yes... lefty loosely.Will do, thanks for the advice. Oh, and standard counter clockwise to loosen the bolt?
So....... is it leaking from the hoses in the "V," or maybe the thermostat housing?New day.... new problem
Any who... Just got everything back together, poured the fluids in, and now it's leaking on the other side
No, definitely a blown gasket. It may have been blown since day one, but because it was full of DexCool sludge it temporarily concealed It. Either that or it dripped into the belly pan, which was filthy.So....... is it leaking from the hoses in the "V," or maybe the thermostat housing?
Or is it spilled water from when you were filling the system?
Is it just my computer screen, or is there something strange about that fuel pump opening in the tank? I can't see the inner flange on the tank where the gasket seals against. There should be about a quarter inch of sheet metal showing inside the bolt flange, but I can't see it in this image. :O
