Default Re: losing antifreeze??

quick update.

Pulled the head and had it tested and shaved. reassembled the engine and has the same issue. Not being one to give up that easily, I pulled it again and repeated the process of new gasket, bolts and torque procedures.

Second time we filled the block with water prior to assembly. once the head was torqued we attached the radiator and pressure tested the cooling system without adding any additional water. leaving the head dry and the block wet.

The coolant began to run out of the oil drain plug again. The problem is in the block not the head or head gasket.

I am in the process of looking for a used engine.

Any suggestions on something else I may have missed would be appreciated.

Tanks for all your time
