I'm going to try and make the Alpine Inn Meetup...

I need an expert to help me figure out why my expansion tank keeps overflowing!

James, one of the guys who'll be there may be able to give some pointers...
Is the truck overheating?

Because your head gaskets is toast ...

Likely the leak in the gasket is causing the water to super heat and generate a steam bubble which forces the liquid out.

Head gasket job isn't too hard if you are comfortable wrenching. Otherwise it's a couple of $k.

Replaced the HG and all the accompanying stuff.

Witnessed my heater core leaking yesterday and I set up a bypass this afternoon.

Fingers crossed it stay cool!

Have you tried filling it under vacuum? Sounds like you got an air lock then.

impromptu meet up - a couple of us are meeting at Stein Beer Garden in Mountain View tomorrow (Tuesday, 20th) at 6:30. If anyone is interested, come join us. I'll, once again, be wearing a green baseball cap.

Not sure what I'll be wearing, but since the truck normally smells of gas and burnt oil I will probably smell the same. Just follow your nose

The NorCal LR Club will be getting together 7pm this Thursday, Oct 20th, at the Alpine Inn Beer Garden in Portola Valley. https://goo.gl/maps/uJ1ojc8M1DE2

I'll remember to bring my green baseball cap.

See you there!
