one tuff engine

Let the engine thaw out for a night (It sat all winter with the air intake off the engine) The oil was clean.. no water in it at all.. Dumped some seafoam into the cylinders, put a new rear main seal on. Installed the engine, turned it over with the starter for 2 minutes with the plugs out, put in new plugs started up.. With the egr selinoid missing and one or two other selinoids.
After I get the car running, my boss tells me that engine hadnt ran in 5 years.

There's a nice mostly rust free '83 blue GL wagon sitting in a field up in the mountains here that I haven't seen move in 4 years since I first saw it. Probably several before that. I'd like to see who owns it and try to start it...

Rode my Quad all day,packed up around 5:00 pm and headed home,gauge went right up to red again.Pulled over for gas,went in and paid,and when I went back out to the brat there was a sea of coolant under my brat,UH OH,guess it wasnt a sender problem.It boiled over. So I filled the coolant and headed home which was 100 miles away. Now Im going exit to exit with my brat boiling over.Another 25 miles of this I made it to a walmart in wilkes-barre pa.At this point the boiling coolant thru the heater core was making the whole dash shake.Bought a flashlite and a tube of silicone in walmart. Removed my t-stat in the parking lot and used the silicone to make a gasket,filled it and drove home with no further problems.Put a new stat in the next day and its been fine since,gets me to work every day.
I have been a wrench for 13 years and never seen an engine withstand that much overheating without blowing a head gasket or just out right cooking the whole engine. Long live the EA-81!
