    Default evac sys.

    I'm getting condensation on the bottom of intake and valve covers over cyl. 1and 2, water droplets on stud gurdle at cyc. 1/2

    I have asked a couple peeps on here with no answer, as well as the Shell answer Man (MikeT) and he say's an evac sys. will not work with water jacketed heads or help with my problem.

    Is there a fix for this ????
    Evac sys. ?????
    1 line from each valve cover to spark arrestor ???
    run a PCV valve ????
    put a circulating pump with thermo stat on the motor???

    I do run for long periods of time.
    water runs around 140/150 running and 180/190 idle.
    oil runs 200/210 after the cooler.

    What type of breathers do you have know? A pcv valve would be simple to try.

    What's your concern? Condensaton is normal.

    It appears you have water in the cylinders also. I think you have water seeping from somewhere. Or you have a big cam and are getting reversion in the exhaust. This will also find it's way into the oil/valve cover area.

    this was with two breathers then I added the other two and it got a little better but still covered the hole bottom. Oil looked good. I did do a water pressure test and the block held 25lbs for one hr.

    I don't know Scott. This don't look normal to me, but I'm no expert. I'm guessing you got a leak somewhere.

    This is possible this is the first time running this cam.
    250/254 @.050
    over lap 28.0

    When I put the motor back together I will do another pressure test again to be safe
    Hope to find some cause for this

    What brand of oil are you using?? I have seen engines that were running Pennsoil do this. I think it has something to do with the parafin base motor oil. Just something out of my memory bank
    Need help finding this 1973 Sanger 18'6" bubble deck mahogany bottom and stringers I was living in Pomona when I sold her in 1979. Just wonder if she still exists

    Update Found my old Sanger 12/7/14 in Reno.

    Are your' exhaust tips below water line when idling? How long has it been doing this?

    I haven't heard of Rotella, but that doesn't mean its bad oil. Might try some good ol Castrol or Valvoline. Does the rest of the engine look like the bottom side of the manifold? Looks like you torn down the engine so you start with a clean slate. Try a different oil and see what happens
