Re: York Head transplant successful...an oil question
Yeah, I had a York seize due (I suppose) to lack of lubrication. When I went to find a new (no mean feat in Nashville), I found a Mercedes 210R York that worked, so I bought it REAL cheap. When I got it mounted up, I found that the intake and exhaust were different from the ones I had (the ones on the new York were mangled), so I figured I would just replace them. Well, the threads were the same, but not the sealing system. SO I just swapped the entire top end from my old one to the new one.
Now its bolted in and hard as h#ll to get out again, so I would prefer using the style of oil in it if possible.
Jeep...need I say more?
