Got a bunch of little things today. Spent around 75 bucks. I got intake to water pump hose, vacuum line hose, 5/8 heater hose, preformed intake to radiator hose. The radiator hose mount to the intake, 180* thermostat, some red wire loom, and an oil pressure sending unit. Today I cleaned then painted the ac compressor/alternator mount, and I also took the fine wire wheel to both the compressor and the alternator to shine them up. So far so good, just need to find a top end gasket kit localy before saturday.

Also tomorrow I WILL get batteries for my digital camera so I can share a ton of pictures.

Don't forget , you still have all that stuff in the exhaust . Will have to burn out . What do you mean it started to shoot coolant again ?

We started it agian right after and it was shooting coolant out of the exhaust. Tons and tons of white smoke. I let it run for a while and it was only getting worse.

It will do that . You probably have alot of antifreeze mix still in the exhaust . How does the temperature guage look ? How does your oil look ? Remember you still may have some antifreeze mix in the oil still . If it checks out ok , you should still change the oil one more time . As long as your not leaking compression into the cooling system , you should be OK . Let me know how you make out . If you have any questions , shoot them my way . Will get back to ya , as long as I'm still on line tonight .
