Alright so i got her back at the lake for a couple of passes after work and man was that fun.(Mt Lake Mafia BEWARE!!! ) I got her up to 50 at 4500 RPMs. I think she has a bit more but i had two people and two full tanks not to mention i got an engine issue so i shut her down before i could really play any more, or im just a boy and need to talk junk.
Two things. I have some oil leakage around the head. On the seam between the head and the intake and on the other side of the head there was some drip on the headers.. Valve cover gasket maybe (Its cork old and shitty)? You tell me.
this is where i am talking.
Second, I have a temp issue. I have two temp sensors, one in each head. the one on the passenger side is toward the back and the one on the driver side is toward the front.
the driver side reads between 155-165 but the passenger ran all the way up to 280. What can cause such a huge difference in the temp?
Both gauges went up at the same speed and read identical until 160 and then the passenger side gauge just kept going up. After shut down and a long cool off it started to go back down. Pictures of plumbing below. thermostat is 160 and no leaks around there or any other water leaks to mention from water system.
