Re: Coolant in oil
These heads are notorious for cracking. And everyone looks in the wrong place for it too. They like to crack near the rocker arm pedestals. But it could very well be an intake gasket - If any significant amount of material has been shaved off of the heads, intake will need milled to compensate. Can't go wrong if you can find a set of world heads, either the castings or dressed. My '88 cracked at 98K shortly after I made a very long trip, rebuilt the engine and went with a set of aftermarket heads.
