That sucks! Although it's looking like we might have some rain up here on the weekend.

Not that it's any consolation for the blown HG

I just spoke with him and I'm going out tomorrow to help. Looks like a head gasket but possibly something else

Pulled the head. Gasket was gone for sure. Sounded like a Stanley steamer. There were remnants of rags in the 3 and 4 coolant passages.
