Hard Luck Chuck - Thrash for the BBF Bash

Hard Luck Chuck strikes again.

After Friday’s T&T all was good, just had to fix a small oil leak and a small vibration that turned out to be the rear yoke. Both were fixed over the weekend but then Sunday Chuck calls and says they are getting water in # 6 cylinder. Chuck and his dad Eddie took the engine and tranny out yesterday and after I finished my honey-do list I met them at the shop. We took the intake and head off the engine and couldn’t visually see anything but maybe a suspect spot in the exhaust port and a few small scratches in the cylinder.

After speaking with Blake, Charlie and Lem we bolted the head back onto the block, topped off the water and then pressurized that cylinder with 110psi and couldn’t find anything. No bubbles in the water etc…… So I’m now thinking that the head is leaking water, BTW these are DOOE-R Iron CJ heads.

Eddie is taking the head to Butch Smith this morning to get it pressure checked. As soon as Chris calls me back then we will know where we stand. Spoke with Ray at Ray’s Crack Repair, if the head is cracked then Ray says that he can fix it ASAP.

SO long story short, unless we can get this one head fixed ASAP or Beg/Borrow a set of heads; then Chuck won’t be bringing his car to the BBF Bash and he’s pretty upset about it. Anyone want to loan me a set of heads for one weekend? Need to have roller springs and titanium retainers. Plus OEM valve pierce points along with Ford intake and exhaust ports. Blake’s already offered to loan Chuck an Iron CJ head, we would just need to swap over Chuck’s valves, springs and retainers.


I’ll keep you posted when I found out more.

Thanks

Gee kinda sounds like my luck... I thrashed all weekend and got the truck ready (except for pushrods which should be here today) only to find out from the guy I "was" going to borrow a trailer from that he loaned it to his dad... And nobody else I know that has one, has one available on this short of notice... So it looks like I may not be coming either... :evil: :evil: I'll keep looking and hopefully something will pop up.

Well Chris called and he can't find a leak anywhere in the head and the head surface is straight so I'm going to take another look at the block. There's a few places that look suspect. Looks like Chuck's car won't be at The Bash but Chuck will be there to keep all of us in line :P
