Crack in my engine block?

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

This weekend I spent some time messing with my engine.  One of the concerns I have had was that the whitish smoke that still slips out of the intake manifold hasn’t gone away.  I had hoped that was simply the rings not sealing, but I don’t believe it is anymore.

While checking the engine closely on Saturday, I discovered that there was some whitish, oily residue on the roof of the oil breather, which suggests coolant in the oil.  My radiator level was also a little low. Between that, the smoke, and the fact that it runs a little rough when under pressure, I now believe that somewhere on my left bank there is a crack. I suspect it’s the REAL reason the seller of my engine stopped using it.

Fortunately, I have an extra 3.8L block that appears in good shape (I’m already using the heads and crankshaft).  I would have used that block initially, except that it’s bored .030, while my Hypereutectic pistons are made for a stock bore.  So, I guess I’ll go back to .030 bore and the pistons that came with that block.

So, I’m going to get my block dipped and cleaned, pull the engine, rip it apart, and put everything back together.  It sounds like some good weekend fun …. I’m might redo the radiator setup while I’m at it — I have a new idea for that.

“I am selling this 1946 Jeep Willys CJ2A. I bought it as part of a package and my wife says it needs to go. It is not running, but the engine turns free and I just had the starter rebuilt. The only thing it’s missing is the Carb to get running again. The body will need some repairs, but I’ve been told that worse have been rebuilt. I have the tag that goes with it, along with a multitude of other parts. Just let me know what you need and I’ll include them. Thanks.

I also have a Jeep (buick) 225 v-6 w/ t-14 3spd and dana 20 transfercase from a commando that can go with it.

Make me an offer, please be reasonable because it is not very often you run across an original owner jeep of this era. I might, just maybe, possably take PART trade on this (totota stuff,chevy stuff ,tires, or running car, or something REALLY interesting)……but only maybe part trade. I do not want to sell thsi it is my dream jeep (especially when done) but I started a new business and need the $$$$$ Thanks for looking. email is the best way to get ahold of me right now.”
