On the 99 I bought as a non runner I’m trying to see if it’s worth putting a few bits right to see if I can get it running. However, it’s got yellow Mayo in the oil cap and spout and the radiator overflow union is broken off, so I’m thinking it might have been abandoned due to a head gasket failure. What’s the quickest route to find out? I don’t really want to put a new rad on if it’s going to burst it or something.
It does start and run but I’ve not had it going long as it starts overflowing after 5 mins.
