That's the way everything is going. Only a handful of places rebuild things anymore. But, that's why I love my job. I start with bare, unformed steel and create.

It's not a matter of challenge, my friend. My soul is that of a maintainer, and the problem is the unit and Army as a whole. We are shifting to a "part swapper" system of maintenance. There fore...

It'd be nicer if they had a VetNet sub forum with a couple of full timers to manage it. Then us vets, old and new, could discuss these things away from the sheep.

Maybe it's own chapter?

Yeah, that's why I'm confounded by this leak. I had a major leak when the old head bolts stretched. It would pour when it ran, but that's it. This is a constant leak.

[update]: I rechecked with a...

Thing is that I managed to get a light and mirror back there and saw nothing. Weird. Seems to be passenger side this time. Last time I actually saw the trail from the driver side head. No evidence of...

I did an inspection on it just now. This is my report: no evidence of leaks from the heater core side of the connections. Still seem to have some around the block side. I'm not 100% sure if this is...
