Re: O/T Liquid Glass to Seal Cracked Head/Block
i think we all know you're going to drive it. i would, most of us would, how else are you going to get home? Maybe flush the radiator, do some basic preservation maintaining (oil, filters, whatever) and ride out. Keep the speed proper, not too much pushing it, keep a good eye on gauges and fluid levels. Have a little cash, a blanket, and a bottle of Wild Turkey in case you get stranded and cold.
i'm leaving on the 31st with an over 250,000 mile XJ, similar situation. What could happen, it will happen. About 24 hours (NJ to Chicago to Florida) of driving away from home. Supposed to be in decent shape, i checked the oil when i got up here, 3 quarts low. For how long? what damage done? Suppose i'll find out.
It is the holidays, people are more likely to help out. But keep the bourbon handy, drive easy, and have faith in the road gods.
1979 CJ-7: 304, T-150, much is my rebuild
1985 CJ-7: 258, T-5, for Peru Excursion
1989 XJ: has seen every state except Hawaii
In search of lost paths and distant locations...
