Well the begining of this past summer she did not start very well not because I didn't winterize her well. She was not spitin water I thought I shut her down in time but probrobly not.
The exhaust manifold was plugged after clearing that out she ran a little hot even though she was pushing good water so I replaced the thermostate and that brought the temp to low. Then the Carberator had water in it so I rebiult it. If she started up right away I was fine if not the carb would flood with water.I took the manifold off and had it tested and cleaned it was fine. Now I am tring to get the head off and she will not budge I am afraid to hit it any harder.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Did I let it get to hot did the head gasget go.
Let me know.
