  1. Re: 671 engine, oil in coolant - diagnosis help request

    Hi Matt,
    That's great!

    The old 71 is a real workmate and it's good to know there's still some out there chugging away.

    Hopefully she doesn't give you anymore headaches for quite awhile.

    Great news!! So glad that you sorted it out!

    Now maybe you can ENJOY firing the old girl up!

    Getting a coolant system degreased is pain...
    ...I know!

    But keep in mind that she will cool...

    I don't know but that sure does look like a plate cooler that the lines are connected to.

    I've never seen a set up like that but whole new worlds can be made from things I've never seen before.

    Well, that report looks encouraging at any rate.
    Hope you have guessed right about the "helping hand". ;>)

    Like I said before, don't assume anything. If you can imagine it, somebody has probably done it somewhere, sometime, some place:>).

    Your thoughts about holding off the degreaser until the oil lab...

    I won't be taking any vacations. Going to the neurosurgeon Wednesday to see if anything can be done about my failed lower back. My days crawling around engine rooms are pretty much done.

    First off, you said; "it is an v6 inline". Nope!

    It's either a V-6 (3 cylinders per side) or it's an in-line with in-line meaning all 6 cylinders are in a row. I suspect it's an in-line.

    A couple of things that you listed were confusing to me so, a couple of questions:

    You say "gear oil and transmission oil cooler" but what about engine oil cooler? Is that all a single unit?

    Yes, an oil analysis would detect antifreeze if that's what you're asking. But simply pressurizing the system with a hand pump would tell you if there is an internal leak.
    You would;
    Pressurize...

    You don't say how this system is configured so I am letting you know that my comments are based on a pressurized, closed cooling system with raw water heat exchanger.
