Don't even go there...

Hp-I went through 6 quarts of oil-all of it into the coolant. The pan capacity is some 10-12 quarts. In this case, I'm guessing that I shorted between a pressurized oil passage and a coolant passage. The oil being a higher pressure than the coolant, is forced into the coolant. The opposite would be true if it was a oil return passage. The strange thing is that the oil inhibits the passage of heat. That pic of my finger into the radiator was taken about 10 minutes after shutting the truck off. It wasn't even warm.

I take NO responsibility for the flat spot on Ken's starter!!!! If we were to compare this non-starting incident to a health issue, your health insurance company would deam this "a pre-existing condition" and deny your claim!!! Therefor, NOT MY FAULT.

And someone who is about to be CUT OFF should keep his mouth shut and finger's at his side instead of pointing them at anyone!!!

I like having Foul on board, especially racing other boats that are supposedly much faster than mine. I think Foul's curse worked for me on that one and against our opponent!! Thanks Mike!!

The truck still runs great! No indication of a problem at all. I'm thinking that is because the fire rings are still good. I was hoping for a bad cooler too. I stopped by a shop and they said that it was definetly a head gasket. They've seen it before. I'm going to ask a couple more people before tearing into it though.
