well, I got the car into the warm work area, did some looking ...... both rear fost plugs, or in this case , freeze plugs were popped out, checked the oil pan drain plug for water, was just enough to thin the oil a little bit, but not discolor it , took the spark plugs out, blew some air in each cylinder, I think I got some moisture out of # 5 on the rt, # 4 on the left, the sprayed some WD 40 in the holes to keep them from rusting. Today I hope to pressureize the block and maybe do a leak down test, providing I can make the neccesssary gadgets to do it with I did get the radiator checked, with a very old pressure checker I aquired many years ago, rad has a very slow leak........ I really would hate to loose this motor !!!!!!!
