      Will do.

      I fitted the motor mounts to the engine. Luckily, I had remembered from the green engine picture that the car needed a ground strap or nothing would work. The engine is isolated from the...

      There does not appear to be any more leaks and there's no water in the bores so we'll be proceeding to install the engine.

      Woo-Hoo! There is no antifreeze in the bores. #3, right-center, is the one that was leaking. There's brass everywhere. We popped that nut off and nothing came out so we cleaned the area with mineral...

      Dave just showed up and you could see the wheels turning. You know the look, K. He has had more engines apart than either of us can imagine and he never seen separate reactions in the same pot.

      Old car stuff. Greg buys it by the case.

      It's a one-piece casting with both chambers cast of the same metal using the same antifreeze at the same temperature. The chambers are physically connected...

      It gets weirder. It's rust.

      Here's what you need to know. Each jug holds 1/2 gallon of 50/50 mix. I poured it in the large hole, because it was an easier target. I watched as the liquid sought its...

      The water is still. There is no water pump. The jugs are separated from each other, water-wise. I don't think that's oil, but I'll sop some up.

      I want you science-types to help me figure this out.

      The 23hp engine drives a hydraulic pump. The left and right handles control valves that control forward and backward rotation. That ability to control rotation is what gives these their zero-turn...

      Perceptions can be illusions. I don't know, was Imperial ever a separate division of Chrysler, or just a model?

      While the Mark II shared a driveline there was little else in common with Lincoln...
