  1. Hello, I had my engine rebuilt 4 years ago, as i did not have the space for it. After chasing down pictures for proper oil plumbing, and then still not having pressure.I realized the rebuilder messed up the oil plumbing. He forgot to put the pump outlet pipe on. I now realiz the rebuilder also messed up the plumbing for the coolant. I only just put this engine back in my car. The rebuilder is not awnsering phone calls. So anyways, I fired up the engine, got oil pressure. she ran great! i thought all was good. When i went to drain the system to pull the radiator( it has a minor leak), and fix some other issues. I noticed i did not get all 4 of my gallons of coolant out. So I pulled the plug on the side of the block. nothing came out. Does anyone have pictures or drawings of the coolant passages that can help me figure out where i am plugged? I refilled the radiator and ran it with the side open and nothing left the system. Thanks.
  2. I'm completing a total rebuild of the engine, but my problem has been coolant leaks. The two longer manifold studs leaked. One of the water pump bolts leaked. And one head bolt leaked. I've solved all those problems using aviation gasket maker but I have one more leak that has me more concerned than the others. I'm somehow getting coolant in the oil. When I cracked open the drain plug I got a stream of coolant, maybe an ounce or two, before I saw any oil drain out. So now I've taken the front of the engine apart again. I gave the welch plug another good smack with a 13/16 socket for good measure. From what I can tell the real problem is water getting past one of the timing cover bolts and soaking through the backing plate gasket. Initially I used aviation gasket maker on the timing cover bolts, but I did not smear it on the gasket. When I reassemble everything I WILL generously coat the gasket and smear the female bolt holes with AGM before I coat the bolts and insert them. Other than timing cover bolts and the front welch plug, is there any other way for coolant to get into the oil? Is Aviation Gasket Maker the best way to seal the threads or is there a better sealant? I think the hole next to the welch plug leaked.
  3. Any opinions out there regarding the best kind of coolant to use in these old cast iron engines, IAT, OAT, or HOAT? Should it contain silicate or not? From what I've read, some coolants contain silicate, and some don't. I'm not even sure why silicate is added. One of my textbooks says that silicates can cause extra wear on water pump impellers although my B3B won't be driven that much anyway.
  4. I was at a car show this summer, put on by the "Cascade Pacific Plymouth Club" and one of the members was trying to introduce me to " https://www.evanscoolant.com/ " has anyone heard of or used this product? any thoughts?
  5. A few days ago I grease the fitting on the radiator fan on my 1947 Plymouth Deluxe. Today I noticed a steady dribble of coolant coming from inside the fan housing. What is the fix, do I have to pull the entire radiator out? Not sure why this would happen only after greasing. Thanks, Chad
  6. Hey guys, Super excited to say that I finally got all the necessary parts to get my P11 running! With that first step out of the way, I can now focus on all of the bits to get it running right and reliably. The first and biggest issue I've found is that it gets hot, and when shut off it pukes out cold water. I originally thought this was just the thermostat stuck, so I removed it but still experienced the same symptoms. What I'd like to know is what my next steps should be: I do plan on flushing the whole system just to see what I'm really working with, is there an easy way to test if the water pump is functioning properly? Is there anything else that I'm overlooking that could be preventing coolant flow? All original everything. I actually got all of the original electrical equipment to work and charge, save for the horns, haven't successfully troubleshooted that.. any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!
  7. So soon FEF will be going to his non climate controlled winter storage, I checked yesterday and he's good to -25°F but I want to get to -40°F, Short of hit and miss, thoughts on how much coolant to drain off before adding straight coolant? Sadly I he isn't staying in my heated garage all winter because I plan on actually starting the TODD cab this winter and need the space to do so.
