    Results of coolant in oil

    Saw this very creative ad for a Northstar Piston Clock on my local Craigslist. I'm pretty sure I had gone to look at this car in Winterset, IA. At the time, the owner was asking $1500 and saying the car needed head gaskets. I pulled the dipstick and it was a chocolate milk emulsion of water and oil. I passed on it as I feared the bearings would be damaged. Apparently, someone from Fort Dodge picked it up and maybe did the head gaskets. Here is the result:

    No matter WHAT the engine, a water/oil emulsion in the crankcase or elsewhere DEMANDS complete teardown and overhaul from the ground up. Just about any problem other than a routine (high mileage) bearing replacement or top overhaul says that you basically rebuild the engine. Your advertisement find is mute testimony.

    Nothing wrong with this thread - It's another part of the learning curve.

    Love the clock! I wish he'd put it on ebay, I'd be a bidder! That's great!
