Happy Father Day, Well Almost

Been working a few days cleaning the underside of the Avenger of excessive oil to determine the oil leaks, Found several possible areas, loose oil pan bolts, one inner push rod tube oring leaking, fittings at the block for remote oil filter. After addressing the above and getting everything clean. Took the car to car show and still had some oil leaks mostly coming out between shroud and top of head. Thinking maybe top cover gasket (I wish) but after driving home and start smelling burning oil and white smoke from the exhaust. After a little clean up and hearing what almost sound like a rod knock put the car on the lift. Now with the car running and oil spitting out like a leaking Valdez oil tanker I see the problem, #5 Cylinder has a blown head gasket. Oil was spitting out and puffs of white smoke coming out between the head and piston. So I have partial tear down in my future. Good time to get the heads freshen up, replace various gaskets and take a peak at the internals. Just another day owning Corvairs. Ole well Happy Father's Day,
