    Sorry for the late reply. I guess I sort of dropped off the face of the forums for a while. Life got a bit on the crazy side.

    I live on Orcas Island which is in San Juan County, Washington. It is a small group of islands in the far northwestern part of the state.

    Using deductive reasoning, the loss of heat into the cab is from air in the system. You say there is a "huge build up of sludge in the engine" where? in the radiator water? on the oil pan dip stick? on the rocker arms under the oil cap? sludge sounds like oil/water foam residue. a bad head gasket, cracked head or block can allow mixtures like this. Run a compression test on each cylinder to check for even combustion chamber pressures, 10% variance ok, then test cooling system pressure seal. one of these should lead you to the problem. as for your "small bypass hose" mine goes to a surge tank/washer bottle mounted in front of the air filter box, not a heater hose. my heater hoses connect directly from the engine to the heater core. If you need more, I can take pics of mine for you.

    Hello, I also have an older f150, mine is a Canadian built 1990 Custom with a 4.9 I6 (the old 300cid) with EFI, 4spd, and dual tanks. I may not be able to help you, but I will try.
