If you cracked a head or blew a head gasket, but the truck never ran hot, you might want to check your temp gauge, too.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Update on the truck. I pulled the vaule cover off and the intake side off the head today. On the number 3 piston intake side there is oil and small bits of metal in the intake part on the head. So now I am thinking its not in the bottom of the motor.

I will know more tomorrow after I finish pulling the head. If its head problem I will still remove the oil pan and put new bearings and rings in the motor.

Ill post more info as i find out what went wrong,

It looks like the wall of the cylinder exploded? How do you think this happened? What do you have to do to fix it? Replace the head?

The piston is complete gone. I am not sure what happen. The block is busted. It has to be replaced. Head is ok. I need to look for another block or engine. I think that is going to be like finding a needle in hay stack. Not sure what to do now. I will be on the look out for a motor. Now that explains why there was no water in the radiator. When the piston broke it broke the sleeve and the water jacket.
