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.
Have a 53 Hydrive that was running when i bought it 2 years ago, but kinda sat ever since. I finally fixed the issue that was the reason it sat so long and went to change all the oil out this weekend and hopefully start it back up and found two new issues. One is that the washer the PO used for the oil drain pan doesn't even have enough copper to make a penny, which is probably why the engine loved to leak oil. But because this thing is so jerry-rigged, i have no idea what size washer i need to replace it with. the thing i pulled out was a paper thin circle that's all kinds of bent up. Also, the PO went old school and cut the oil with kerosene. And its been sitting in there for the past 2 years. So I assume that my oil pan is going to be super clean. but do I need to worry about anything else being messed up now?
