    Blew a head gasket, intake gasket or broke something to let water into the oil.

    Get out the wreches and get to work.

    back all the rockers off and pressureize the cylinders with air, use you leakage tester for that you can also pressureize the water hoses to the motor to pump up the block with air, that's my fav way on a boat.

    could be simple as a manifold leak...Use 3m weatherstrip adhesive on the water ports. Have used sevral times with excellent success.

    I've done this with small ammount of RTV and had no problems. Both sides of both gaskets.

    I have heard that they almost beg to leak if you just put the intake gaskets on un-touched.

    think he going to check them with the old "ACID TEST" once he gets it running again.

    Did he notice the temp at any point before or after? If it overheated, it might end up being more than just a gasket problem.

    Im sure that works. Im sure he did it when he built it too. On an engine that leaks at the manifold once though, its worth it to spend a couple bucks and use something that works better than RTV IMO. That way you dont mess with it again.

    I've used 3M weatherstrip adhesive on high water psi applications.
    Some that I know use holymer (sp?).
    Low water psi seams fine with thin coat rtv but I still use a little 3m weatherstrip in middle of gasket (between port pairings) to hold gasket in place.

    i use the 3m weatherstrip adhesive too, gaskets don't shift using it like they do with silicone.

    check gauges he doesnt know what that means

    i havent been able to check anything other than drain the oil,the shop is tied up with wrecks and its been raining here forever

    as far as the bearings im gonna pull the damn motor out and tear it all apart.i got to thinking well if he held it to the floor till it just diedwell i would hate to find it to be just a h.g. or intake gasket then put back together and knock,knock or no oil pressureso for once im gonna be smart,lol or try to be anywayhe has put alot of hours on the motor and this is the 1st problem,i did use black silicone on all the water ports,but if you remember the fun i had.i had to machine the intake to compensate the major milling of the block when all this happened during the build and i never did like the way it fit.so i will find out soon enough i hope he didnt destroy the whole thing
