Thank you all for the help I will keep hacking away at this. The antifreeze mixture is not something I thought of. I didn't know it lowers the boiling point if mixed to rich. Make sense that lowering the freezing point would do that; physics says something must give. I'll pick up a new cap also.
I'll deal with it when I get back from picking up a 91 300 E 3.0 that I just bought. I got it for a good price $7100 w/116K on it.
I can't sleep, I can't stop thinking about it. These puppies are addictive. This is #2 in my small fleet with many more to come.
