Andy --

Could be any of the things you mentioned. In any case, it is not good. Likely the motor will need to be pulled and inspected.

Best of luck with it, Pam

Not sure yet i pulled the engine and i talked to the engine builder he seems to think its the heads because he said if you even look at the cast iron heads wrong they can crack, so if it is the heads hes got some spares that he can put on just to let me finish the season then on the off season i will have it rebuilt
