Tom,
   Remind Frank of Bob of The North's experience.  He had to occasionally add water until his engine blew. He had it towed to Luke and a complete rebuild which I think included 2 heads.  Jack

Just one head replaced but otherwise correct.  We ran it for four years and it always used a little water.  It would likely still be running that way except for the one day when I let it get low on water and it overheated.  Its like a landmine waiting to get you when you least expect it.
