Murica!! Sweet honey barbeque!!! Cool indeed!! Only way to make that any cooler is if your NRA mebership sticker was showing on the side window! 🇺🇸

It is green, that's my ex cab. And now ex-drivable until I see what part of the motor is sucking water from the radiator.

Yes head gasket or warped head. The PO said he replaced the heads with brand new ones, I'm hoping his torquing skills are horrible and I can simply replace gaskets and new bolts.

Or maybe he lied.

Is it standard procedure to replace head bolts nowadays?  Back in the 1970’s when I twisted wrenches for a living, we never replaced the head bolts. I guess things change without me noticing. Of course, I haven’t changed a head gasket since the mid nineties.

Many modern engines have single use bolts now - they are torqued up to the yield point so reusing isn't a good idea!

The K series Austin Rover engine has bolts that run right through the head & block and screw into a frame that carries the crank bearing caps in the sump! This amazingly light and strong engine has fully floating cylinder liners and basically falls apart once the bolts are removed!

Instead of using a series of bolts to close the cam carriers-to-head and head-to-block and block-to-ladder, the K does this by using one long bolt which goes right the way through the engine. The metallurgy of this bolt has been very carefully designed and the torquing at 64Nm brings the bolt to its yield point. Effectively the point at which the bolt will stretch with the block under its cyclic loading, to distribute these loads very evenly throughout the block.

That is an interesting design. Yeah, I got this image in my mind where you remove the last bolt, and end up with a pile of parts. Question is, can a single person actually ASSEMBLE this engine, or does it require more than two hands to hold parts in alignment while someone else installs the bolts?

Hey that’s nothing, I’ve had like 1568 pounds worth of scrap in the back. My uncle had 1.5 tons in the back of his 94! Dude at the scrap yard was like that is NOT a Mack truck

Those style shelves come apart in like 30 seconds with a rubber mallet or a portion of a 2 X 4. They would have fit in the bed apart I'm amazed they didn't fall apart on the trip to the scrap yard.
