I think I’ll shorten the bumper supports a little and slide that bumper back. Get rid of my front porch.
What a mess.
I forgot how complicated pulling this motor is. I have to take my headlights out. Well, maybe not them, but almost.
So the piston has a hole melted in it from excessive carbon build up. A never ending flame front burned a hole in it.
The head gasket was about to go anyways on number four. The spark plug was melted, and that jet valve shroud got melted as well.
I have an m28 njv head waiting.
The radiator is from a ~1985 Mercedes 300td. It fits just between the frame rails. It does require either an inline filler, or a remote reservoir (recovery tank) like the Mercedes came with. So far cruising will sit just above the thermostat temperature, idle will reach 200 after about 20 minutes of sitting still.
