Oh crap Look on the bright side, it could have been coolant in the oil........

When it rains, it pours.............I hope your family is taking this in stride. If you do end up here for a visit I promise to take them to Ripley's Aquarium, where you walk under the sharks.

Cheers mate.
Tony

The Apostle islands are worth a visit. Close by. Lots to do and see up there. Worst places to be stuck. I can give you some more ideas. I went to school up dar in da UP.

You are probably at the same place I stopped at thinking I needed a water pump. Turned out to be the only hose I hadn't replaced. Hope your issue is simple too. Good luck.

Nick you'll want to read this, if you haven't already; especially the part on how to flush glycol out from the oil.

Cummins put us up in a hotel with waterpark. Confirmed it was the head gasket, blown in six places, it did not seat properly with the head. Already disassembled, will reassemble tomorrow, and purge/test wednesday.

There is a lot of history here, and we are enjoying the hiking.

Thanks! We'll add it to the list for tomorrow. We rode the north shore scenic railroad and visited the depot today. Love those yellowstone steam engines!

Back on the road wednesday, in lower MI. Found other issues from Cummins at first stop. When we got back on the road the first time cruise control was not working. I didn't care because we broke down again. Apparently someone stepped on my cruise servo, knocked an actuator and vacuum tube off. Rather than fix, or ask, they tucked it down and zip tied it to another hose.

When it rains it pours. Hopefully that's it for issues on this trip.
