    This is why you don’t put engines outside with out a cover.
    I came into work last week and saw this.
    The engine filled up with so much water the aluminum oil busted off. IMG_8219.JPG

    That´s probably not the only problem ... there seems to be a freeze crack on the side of the block just beneath the head between the motor mount boss and the dipstick hole... but I may be wrong

    I'm pretty sure there had to be water in the pan to crack it like that. Motor doesn't technically (crystalize) freeze. It does go beyond it's pourpoint at -35 to -50 degrees

    At the third bolt from the left there's a long crack that water was seeping out of.. I hope I'm wrong..

    When I came in last week and saw it, the crankcase was one solid block of ice.
    It had time to thaw out, and melt away.
