Can of worms

Started tearing down Lucile to replace the engine and this is what I found. The reason why she spewed water from behind the manifold was a bad freeze plug, and I think I might have found the exhaust leak.

Is this what you guys mean by, "Drive it till it breaks."?

Scratches on a Jeep are like scars on a soldier, earned and respected :D

Seafoam and some Marvel Mystery Oil and it will run and drive like new!

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

Crome dip stick.......wait that just makes it go fast

Hopefully that rusted out freeze plug hole cleans up enough to reseal. If not its a pipe tap and pipe plug.
