Hi guys. I think I have big problems. I have my dad's MH44k with Continental H260 engine (been in the family since new in 1948) and recently on shutdown, the radiator made a big sigh!
Couple more small runs and yes, water in the oil (all milky). Started her up and bubbles and water coming out top of radiator. Far in excess of expansion due to heat. It was pouring out. I should say I had to top the radiator up with a LOT of water prior to this last start.
Ah ha, I hear you say...classic symptoms of a blown head gasket. So I took the head off and off to a head specialist to be pressure tested and head and gasket all ok.
He suggested dropping the pan and look for corrosion around bottom of sleeves. However I could not see any evidence of this.
Any and all thoughts appreciated. Rod.
