[my freeze plug behind LH exhaust manifold-to-exhaust-pipe junction?]
Having just paid for the privilege of someone else R&R&R'ing the heads
and manifolds, I am , umm, reluctant to do so. Not lazy, no sir, not
me. Merely reluctant, that's my story.
Turns out that with daylight _and_ a flashlight I can not only see
that there is in fact a freeze plug in the aforementioned location but
that this one has been weeping. I suppose, under pressure, it was
pissing as well.
I can imagine. My experience with the mix of cast iron and welding is
limited and poor. I will however keep the idea handy, thank you.
For the moment the leak has stopped. I suppose that the R&R on the
heads stirred up enough shit inside the engine that some of it has now
floated/been carried to and is plugging the hole. I may add some
Barrs to the mix as a thirty day solution. I may not too, it's been
running hot of late. If it ain't one thing...
