Do yall leave just top port open, or all 3?

I forget but one is free flow and one is restrictive for some reason. Maybe due to the type of thermostat housing. I personally use the free flow.

Thank you. I couldn't post from my phone, but figured out.

Now to just get the water out of the oil!

Put the oil in a pot and boil it.

Is that what happened? Riser gasket?

At this point, we think its the intake. We've ordered an almost new Offenhauser 360. Unfortunately, it hasn't shipped yet. :-(

We also have some backup shorty headers to run, if the intake doesn't do the trick. This will allow us to eliminate water intrusion through the exhaust. But, like i say, at this point the culprit seems to be the intake. It has questionable repairs.

Man I don't like seeing oil like that. Had that issues earlier in the year.

"A little too much" water to boil off.


Just for the hell of it,put 6-8 oz in a metal pan and place the pan on your gas grill.

If you have an IR temp gun get the oil to say 250F and see what happens.
