coolant leaking into exhaust
Posted 01 October 2004 - 03:46 PM
So I tore off the head, and i saw nothing out of the ordinary, small cracks in-between the valves, but they didnt look too bad. but i see nothing wrong. its kind of irritating. ive never seen a bad head up close so i cant tell if this one is bad. the cracks are only inbetween the valves, i dont think they touch the valve seats, and i cant tell if they extend to the guides, to inspect them do yall usually take out the valve springs?
i dont know, if i cant tell visually ill just take it down to get it checked out.

as far as coolant in the exhaust, look for cracks in the EXHAUST PORT, there is where the water passage is, if you havent found a crack in the exhaust port, clean it up really good and you should find it. it will go from the septum in the exhaust port up into the head. bet you a dollar.

anyway i just got back fromt a "Pull Your Part" and i ripped off a head that had those cracks in BOTH exhaust ports, so i politely threw it back.
ps. i havnt seen you on in a while, good to see you back.
