Bad and good news

Removed the head off today. Gasket was blown from coolant passage to the number three cylinders. Examining the head closer there was a pit mark, kinda like rust formed, and eat though the head. I had another head lying on the bench behind the car so i will be putting that on. But the next thing is where are the water and oil mixing???????
There are no visible marked on the gasket. So that is a mystery and will find out later

But i still have bad news. Since I've had dentination my number 2 piston is burned, but not enough to produce blow by, this is my only means of transportation right now. So im going to throw it back together and drive it. i cant stand having to borrow a car and not having mine. Until she dies is the way i drive!

Ill start rebuilding my disassemble engine in the basement in a few weeks, maybe bore it over, and add some after market stuff to make some real power. i feel a t3 coming on. Dont you???

I've enclosed pictures of the head i took off and the cylinders

With the amount of water that was getting into that cylinder, it was likely being blown past the rings as steam. Then it would condense back to liquid.
