Back to Millicent business:

Is it possible that I live right after all?
…That the benign ghost of C. L. Cummins might deign to gaze down upon me with favor and tolerance, in spite of all?

I finally got around to pressure testing Millicent’s oil cooler.


It leaks.

I'd take a $300 fix over complete overhaul any day.

Hell yeah bud! Glad it was the issue. $300 and a few hours work sure beats the alternative.

Aftermarket coolers are available for less than $100. But... poor as I am... The Real Thing might help me sleep better. I once bought a radiator for a car, with transmission cooler inside -- the cheapest I could find. Those fluids started mixing after just a couple weeks.

IF it's the same setup as the one used in light duty applications, the oil filter mount is bolted to the side of the block.

The gaskets are cheap... the cooler isn't but can be found used.

Pretty simple DIY fix if thats the case. If its the headgasket... not nearly as simple but not terrible either.
