I'd be prolonging the inevitable. He ran it DRY about 6 months ago. Since then had to replace the water pump (only about an hour job and the ONLY easy thing on this pig) and the radiator has a crack. Been filling with water but I suspect the head gaskets may be letting water through. Not possitive but this was going to have to be done.

did that before too...lol

changed the water pump out with a couple friends "helping" turns out one of them hooked up the steam hose and the overflow hose up backwards to the radiator neck... so when the engine would get warm/hot, it would send all the hot coolant to the overflow tank... which just dumped it out

didn't have time enough to look at it and spent about 2 weeks with 6 gallon jugs of water in the passenger floor board each way to work and back. by the time I got it fixed, I had blown a head gasket
