Thankyou. Much sanity in your advice I hadn't thought of just a head replacement but an entire motor
.I have customized this van into a camper. Put platinum plugs in it. High qual roof racks. Front bull bar. Tow bar.I have fully undersealed it too.
Then I find my mechanic has, some while ago, drained the anti corrossive out. Amazingly, even when I had the radiator recored that firm charged me for coolant /corrosive but didn't put it in (I was distracted by my dying mum)
So now.I realize. All the myriad steel heater pipes are probably all corroded (one of these rear feeds burst. Hence I lost all water on the motorway.)
So just the head is not my only problem.
I need to just try my luck with some "snakeoil" and "Seal Well" (nz product) appears to be one that can stay in my coolant and continue to fill any new problems. Racing car drivers have have testimonials on their site.I am thinking of shutting down my entire heater system to alleviate this leakage potential.
If this doesnt work I will look at buying the most recent serena with the same dimensions and transfer all my custom fittings across to this.
So could you perhaps send me a link where I can see the correct way to shut the heater system off while I try this desperate move. Or what else does your wisdom offer. Thankyou so much for this help. Roy mason
