Oh yeah, Javier, I've meant to tell you this for a while but I keep forgetting. Thanks for the bottle opener. I appreciate it.

Oh men, no problem at all; thank you for our help.

I am on vacation until tomorrow so today I am taking this thing apart to see what happened. I already talked to the guy at the machine shop and he will check the heads for me.

OK, I emptied the radiator and the first half of the coolant showed some discoloration but no oil was present.

I then drained some more and about the last 2 cups did show oil.

Like I mentioned before, could it be that the extra quart of oil that I put in the engine somehow found it's way to the cooling system via the intake? The engine never smoked burning that extra oil. Hmmmmm

Yes, I hate to take this thing apart again.

Javier,
Those are two separate and independent closed systems. There should be no WAY that they should cross contaminate that way. The only two ways I can think of that oil got into your coolant is #1 that the head gasket was not fully torqued and the head surface has warped. #2 The other way oil could get into coolant is human error, by pouring oil directly into the radiator.

Ok guys,
Tearing the engine apart one more time. Got new head gaskets and will order new head bolts, again. I wish I had all the lifters to replace them now that I am in there but this engine was quite and smooth so I guess I will not do it for now.
In the meantime Jacobo the red SWB with almost 500K miles is saving the day. That little machine saved my life once and now continue to save the day when the others need some time off.

I will post updates, I hope it doesn't take long as this is the 3rd time I take it apart.

Took me just 4 hours to tear it apart plus +/- 10 minutes to take them to the machine shop.
They are going to pressure test them to see if they are cracked or bent.

Got to wait, if they are unrepairable, I found them at Rockauto for $339 so lets see.

Thanks offroader.

Issue with the heads fixed <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />.

My friend at the machine shop found that I had drilled a little too far into the water jacket when drilling out the broken rocker bolt <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> No biggie, it was putting just a bit of oil into the coolant so he welded it up and since the heads were off he also cut them a bit to make them perfectly flat and have a clean seal surface plus cleaned the exhaust a bit.

It is evident that this has affected the heads performance in a positive way as this engine has come alive. It is not the same engine to which you will give it the beans and you will wait for it to respond No, no, no this thing goes.

It has to be all the little things, I am not building a screamer but little things help in a big way sometimes so others might come.

Great News JavyPro!!!

I was wondering what had happened. It's a good reminder to all of us that we should be very diligent while extracting broken bolts on cylinder heads.
