Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Thanks again.. and you are right. At least I have the internals. He’s a piece of shit for not reaching out. Like I said earlier, I don’t expect any money back. How about helping me with a bare block...

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

I appreciate the honesty. And I agree it has to be torn apart. So far the only thing I know for a fact is that it has the big pistons in it.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

I am pulling the pumps first in order to figure out the coolant problem. Starting with that seems to be the most imperative problem. I can’t address anything else until that is done

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Also. I pulled my lower hoses off and only the drivers side of the engine drained. The passenger side is still full of coolant. Could the passages be clogged?

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

It sucks because of the time and money I have in vested in this engine. The guy who built it is t going to cover anything. Probably 70 miles on the damn thing.
