Here is the situation. I have a new motor its a 638" bbc, dart block, intake and heads. the headers are cmi split tops. the cam is from comp but it was a teage specific cam. the specs on the cam are 258* intake 266* exhaust* @.050" on a 114 lobe seperation. the headers have no drop at the tail pipes and the are injected at the tips. I used these headers on my other motor and they were fine. the problem is is that I keep mixing water and oil. I pressure checked the block it checks out ok so at 40 psi I have no loss of pressure. the headers check out ok at 35 psi but the 1,3,5,7 cylinder side of the motor has water in all 4 header tubes after running it at idle for a few minutes. its about a tea spoon in each tube. there is no water in the other header. I am not sure that the water in the oil is coming from the exhaust but why would only one side of the motor have reversion? the tail pipe on this side is the longer of the 2 if that matters. HELP!!!!! I am out of ideas and patience. I have ran the motor with the oil cool rbypassed and it does the same thing. even though the cooling system and the leak down check out ok couldnt the head gasket still be pushing water????????? I am about to go through a divorce over this lol.
