Add me to the "Head Gasket Changing" list

Well, confirmed my suspicions this morning. A very tiny spot of froth in the oil, up in the threads for the filler cap. Also, It seems the truck puked some coolant out of the overflow last night but 12 hours since I rant the truck the cooling system still has a lot of pressure?

Oh well. I was prepared for this anyways.

Should I snap a series of photos as I do it?

-Hans

Yes, please, that would be great as I evidently have to do the same thing to mine shortly.

Hans, my 90 runs cool most of the time (lower t-stat not the 195) and this causes the white froth on the oil filler cap. The pressure thing, mine does this also, then sometimes it doesn't. My truck has been doing this for the last year, I just throw the old coolant back in the engine when it does puke out, I have an overflow tank on the over flow tank.

This all sounds like what I had happen to me. I had a fairly good size break in the right side head gasket. So now I have new gaskets milled heads and electric fans. So far so good.

Project delayed, wife's car got bonked while we were stopped at a red light. Ugh, I was hoping to start this a couple days ago.
