charley got a 68? volvo chrysler penta 200 4 banger (just bought for change)really too clean for the year,has 2 side draft strombergs,the boat's a 68 16 ftr.It's a steal for the condition, the motor looks like the paints a month old.except for the oil mixing with water. It does'nt look like it's been run that way since I was the first to start it this year and valve area looks clean peering in oil cap.It's got a bad clean water leak behind oil cooler also.With house water pressure running(40-50#).I'd say it's a head gasket but I'm a newbie to marine engines so I'd like some pointers thanks.
