  • Oil in coolant // 8N front mount dist
  • Pulling apart an 8N block and noticed oil coming out of coolant petcock on side of block, not to mention the lower rad hose. . .
    Flat head engine with contamination?
    How did that happen?

  • How much? One quart in 5 or 1 in 2 or 4 oz in a gallon?

  • Thanks for the response.
    I am beginning to suspect the, now moved to heaven, ex-owner found the radiator cap with a quart of oil. No antifreeze/water in the oil so my suspicion is growing rapidly to an oop's of human nature.
    I sold the rotating mass out of it and now have a decent looking front dist block.
    I should get that cleaned up and auctioned of soon enough if I was smart about it.
