water in oil

Postby superaero28 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 6:59 am

Hi All,

I've recently bought a grey Fergie TEF which I thought had a head gasket gone as the engine oil was creamy. It runs fine. Head has been taken off and skimmed and new gasket, but there is still water getting into the oil.

Has anybody had a similar issue or any ideas? Could the block be cracked?

I wonder if the copper gaskets under the liners were disturbed? And did you torque the bolts again once brought up to temperature.

Ha

Has similar problem after a complete engine rebuild, and after a while had creamy engine oil. Had to retorque the head and that fixed it. so check head bolts :thumbsup:

John V is talking about these copper gaskets.But Fergy ones.

They sit under the cylinder Liners, and must not be disturbed.
Just moving the pistons can break the seal. I made up some clamps, and fitted, soon as the head gasket was removed, keeping them clamped in place.
