Thanks for the words on my COE. I mounted the cab on a 74 GM dually reg cab chassis. I still need to build the flatbed for the back, out of diamond plate steel. The chassis was given to me by a friend, can't beat the price! I used a 350 SBC and turbo 400 trans. Nothing too fancy, not trying to build a car hauler or trailer towing truck, just a fun run around driver.
Back to my coolant in the spark plug holes, so the likely culprit is a leaking intake gasket you say Jake? I was wondering if there is any better gasket for this, or recommendations? Fel-Pro, Motorcraft or other? Thanks again for the help! IS it a common problem for the gaskets to start leaking a bit when the miles get up to the range, 125K, I am at? I assume the intake gasket replacement is a pretty easy straightforward job, just a R&R type job? Except for the wonderful access to the bolts in the back of the intake under the cowl.
Also Jake, I do happen to beplanning/building a land speed racer, I have a rough 55 Studebaker coupe that I am going to build up. Too rough to bring back for a resto, perfect for making a racer. My goal is 200+ mph. Right now I just got the car and cleaning it up and deciding exactly what chassis, rollcage, safety, drivetrain, etc.
