Is it time for my yearly rant on antifreeze? I have removed the head from my spare motor and it's water passages were completely plugged at the head gasket! The white deposits fill the area around the cylinders on the low side. This is the second motor (out of four) that has been clogged like this.

Come on folks! Put some new green stuff mixed with distilled water in there every year and keep your cooling system working. Don't use the orange long life stuff.

If you have summer overheating issues, reduce the antifreeze to 15% and add a bottle of Red Line Water Wetter.
