Head woes!

More checks were carried out last night and Chris' conclusion is that there is high possibility that the head gasket is a gonner. But just to verify, he'd asked me to perform the same inspection he did early in the morning when the engine is still cold.

I went home early that night and had a lousy rest with troubled sleep... How can this be happening again? I just replaced the head gosh darn it. But as any automotive enthusiast will tell you, it's just part and parcel of maintenance.

So I woke up at 5.30 this morning and was very anxious to inspect the radiator again in hopes Chris was wrong (which is very seldom).

I went to my darling Silver Banana, opened up the cap, filled in water, and fired her up. Goodness gracious, froth was coming out. Kinda like when we make cappucino. Once the temperature rised until the quarter mark and the thermostat opened, bubbles came out like a kid blowing them on his toy while he's having a sugar rush!

Darn... More work to be done... Updates coming soon.

No no no no.... I've already spent way too much on this one to change it. Almost everything is new now.

I'll repair the head and do whatever needs doing.
