I'm on the finals of a complete Top overhaul...
The drip is distilled water. since I'm flushing the system a few times before I put the 50/50
The Heads were machined, new bolts with gaskets, I lower the engine to properly torque the bolts.
Everything is new incl uding chain, water pump, oil pump gears...all the O'rings are new. New kit for the power steering pump_done.
New motor mounts. New oil separator. New cables. New 180 Thermo Stat. New belt.
Everything that you recommended, plus Friends in The UK , New Zealand and Australia...and of course I cant forget Disco Mike ;>)
But it has been over 17 month since I started this project...Im really getting mentally burn...
So I sincerely appreciate any constructive advise...specially now at the end of a painful journey...
Imaging for this to happen now.... ;>(
