Many years ago, my 140 was leaking oil into the cooling system. I could see a little oil in the top of the radiator. I had run it that way for a few seasons, and it was never more that a light skim of oil. I finally did change it one winter, and soon the same thing began to happen. My step-father suggested that I put 2 headgaskets on it. :idea:

He proceeded to tell me about a Ford car with an inline 6 cyl. that his company had purchased that did the same thing new from the factory. It was never fixed right, and the company sold it cheap. It was bought by a car dealer friend of his and they fixed it by putting 2 headgaskets on it.

I did that to my 140, and to this day it is still right. I may shoulda had some resurfacing done, but this was simple, and there was no loss of power. :D
