    second motor is toast :( went on cruise today about 30 min or so. On way back to the house look back and my exhaust on right side looks like I’m fogging for mosquitos :( temp never got over 170. Opened radiator up An was about two gallons low. Dip stick is about an inch past full and the motor won’t turn over, hydrolock I’m guessing

    Man, that’s some bad luck. Don’t these engine builders run and test the motors they build any more?

    I hope the builder DOES MAKE IT RIGHT. Hope they don't start thinking up excuses...

    Look on the bright side...... with engine #3, you will be an expert installing engines in old Broncos.

    :D

    Do builders not dyno test their engines before selling them.....?

    Head gasket plus other bad things sounds like.

    Deadeye is right. Was the oil on the stick foamy?

    We have run it a dozen times since installing it. Every time we got it up to temp and never had any problems. I’m not sure if a few dyno passes would have caught this

    Make sure you got your tracking device up and running when you drop it off. Never know who's going to be looking at it while it's in the shop.
