Dang!

Road test last night, and suspension wise everything was great. What was not so great was that the coolant definately had oil in it, and there was a bit of light brown opaque oil on the dipstick. AFAIK, that is a blown head gasket, but given the total state of the engine, I think a swap is in order...

Known issues with the current engine:
- Oil pump is probably about to fail, takes a long time to prime
- Oil leak from the crankshaft seal behind the flywheel
- Leaking frost plugs in several places
- Cross threaded plug hole on #4

I will call Lotusbits on monday, methinks...
