have put my 2.8 fronty up for possible sale but if i could get
help with the head gasket i would keep it, im not very mechanicly

of my league.

My land cruiser developed a similar problem shortly after I got it. Turned out to be that the previous owner hadn't serviced it the whole time he had it covering high miles over a good few years. Sneaky begger had taken the thermostat out to hide it for a while. Engine was just jammed full of thick awfull oil I spent a while pulling out in lumbs/ handfulls....

yep i dont know when the guy last serviced mine,been told
to put soda crystals in and leave it for 24hrs then give it a
good flush out and if there is any s--t in the rad or water channels
this stuff will clear it out.
