Well..... guess who has water in their oil... in their new motor ....
Head gasket or intake gasket issues?
Poor Bel........... you can't catch a break.
dont know what the problem is right now.. i was so pissed i just had to walk away. will probably drop the oil pan and see if we can see any drips. I hope its just a gasket but OMG thats a pain in the butt and ten steps backwards = (
When finished and rolling down the road......... Bel, that '77 Bronco will be worth a MILLION dollars.................... to you (only).
I wouldn't pull the oil pan. I'd check the plugs for water, then pull the heads.
Have the heads been surfaced or block been decked? Either could cause misalignment of the water ports in the intake/head flanges......letting it leak. It also can change the clamping force of the area.
I've seen the heads and block surfaced so much that the intake to block (valley gasket area) held the intake to head contact area off enough to let water leak into the motor.
Check into it.....if this be the case,try leaving out the valley gasket strips and see if it sits lower and let the intake hit harder on the head. If it does not,the machine shops can cut the intake valley points down to let it work.
