I'm not sure, boss, but I returned the tester to Autozone this afternoon. I also confirmed that I had further coolant "usage" and that there is "vaseline" forming on the inside of the oil cap again. I've read and asked around, and it looks like the only place in this system, other than the oil cooler, that the oil and coolant have a chance to interact is the head. Well, that's not completely true if I consider the cylinder liner, but the LC guys are banking on a ruptured head gasket between the water jacket and oil galley.
It looks like I need to get to work pulling the head. I'll have my machinist give it a good look to see if he can tell me where it went. Do you disagree that this is the wrong action to take? I don't want to draw this thing out any longer than I have already...
