  1. Thanks again for all your feedback, its nice to find people willing to assist !
  2. I understand. What I just found out recently is that the head gasket is leaking and needs replacement. And also I cannot get the radiator cap off to check water level because it seems like the cap must be rusted onto the radiator and I don't want to cause further damage to the radiator/cap without some thought. I could take off the upper hose and fill that way to ensure that there is sufficient water level to run the engine for a bit, but with the combo of obvious combustion leakage out of the head gasket and unkown quantity of water I feel best thing to do is gather as much technical information as possible on head gasket replacement. Including torque specs, what coincident work I should perform if taking off the head already etc. Do you have any recommendations on where the best sources of information for the specs I should look ? As this forum has been such an excellent resource already, thanks to yourself and others on this forum, I was thinking maybe the best action is to post a new thread asking what recommendations from members as to good scope of work to perform since I am going to replace the head gasket.
  3. Thank you so very much for your input, very informative. There are some parts in the trunk that looks like maybe a vacuum canister and maybe alternator/generator. Also have the original vent cap for oil tube. I am in the process of gathering information on torque specs, gasket materials and any replaceable parts to install during head gasket replacement. I am hoping the head is not warped along with the block so that I can do a "simple" head gasket replacement. Any suggestions as to head gasket replacement part and what other parts should I replace if I do indeed do the head gasket repair myself ?
  4. Thank you very much, I appreciate the information !
  5. I acquired a 1928 Chevy Coupe with what I believe is a replaced engine. I need to identify the engine so I can replace the head gasket and potentially other parts. I appreciate any assistance in locating codes and/or other means of identifying the engine. It is a straight 4 cylinder
