Turned the rev limiter to 6k just to see if it would hit. Got around 5500  and don't have any pics but almost the diverter to happened to look back and see it  flying in the wind by the shifter cable

The timing plate cover was so rusted that as soon as gave it some gas the pump pressure pushed threw one of the water ports and filled the block with water to the point that it shot oil and water out of the valve cover 4 or 5 feet

Good looking out but we already bought a new one from mondello and had it overnighted to us. that video was from yesterday and everything was good. oil pressure was 60 to 65, temp stayed around 150 to 160.

Ok so went back to havasu and the boat ran great till the last run back from steam boat cove. I got on it and looked back and noticed the milk coming from the pass valve cover and dipstick. When I stopped the weep holes were pouring. So the Bassett valve was stuck. We put it on the trailer an brought it home and drained like 18 quarts of oil and water ( holds 14 quarts of oil normally). I put air in the cooling system to see if I could hear any leaking I put 20 psi in and let it sit for 2 days checked it again still had 17 or so. Pulled apart the Bassett valve and there was a rock in it. Could the valve being stuck fill the bottom end?does anyone run a filter on the valve to keep this from happening? You might also notice in the first pic how it looks like it has no diverter or reverse bucket well we almost lost it we lost both set screws and on pin on the diverter knuckle. Only thing holding it were the cables

Damn dude. I went through this all last summer like 6 times. I doubt you  were able tonsuck 4 qrts through the exhaust. There's gotta be a small gasket leak somewhere. What kinda shape is your timing cover in?

Heads didn't set correctly? That was my issue. When I rebuilt my olds. It would be fine at idle (no water in oil) but as soon as is give it some gas. The water would make it's way in. I also did a compression test (all checked out) as well as a leak down. Held 20lbs over night. Eventually pulled the heads off, had them re machined at clay smith ( previous machine shop was a joke) and currently have 5 trips with no milk. When you put the heads on, did you spray the head gasket with any copper spray? And made sure you did the toque sequence (3stage) correctly?

Gonna try this one more time before we change all the gaskets. It's been like 5 years since we had a regular spin on filter and I grabbed a ph30 except something doesn't look right. I don't remember but isn't the seal supposed to be on the inside

I wouldn't use a Fram filter on anything. Buy a Wix, a NAPA Gold, a K&N, Anything but a Fram.

I just read it literally 2 minutes before your post.   Another sad victim of modern business psychology and economics.

That's where being lucky is always better than being good....  8)

I have personally see four of them literally blow off.... two on a Ford Mustang during an oil change, one on a 468 Chevy on the dyno and one on a small block Chevy 1/2 ton pick up in the middle of BFE...

Never saw any other do that. China is winning.  :P

You can run them if you want to.... I am thoroughly unimpressed.

My dad sold auto parts for more than 35 years and i would watch him routinely talk people out of the Fram filters. Most of the time down grading them to a standard NAPA for 75 less..

Ohh god what did I start haha.
This motor has always had a Fram on it since my dad bought it in 96 and even when he bought it, it had a Fram.
If you hate that filter so much then your definitely gonna hate the oil that I got for it today seemed like a better Idea to only 28 dollars on quakerstate instead of 95 dollars for vr1, if it was gonna milkshake again.
