Re: Where is the water going?

Even with the level below the baffle, since it is a vented system, some will evaporate and leave via the overflow tube. We need to keep an eye on it and "top it up" as needed. I certainly am...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Disclosure: my car is certainly a driver, but IMO if the new block is very hard to tell externally from a stocker, it should pass judging and only be a factor as a tie-breaker. That would require...
