If coolant/water does go into the cylinder it would at least blow white smoke out the exhaust right? mine does not blow any smoke at all except in the morning.
it does not over heat as well, I drove it hard yesterday for about a couple of hours and temp was normal.
there were oil leaks in the distributor due to its gasket but could that be the cause? still thinking the gasket is messed up but I just want to be sure before we open it up again as everything is running smooth at 12psi except these bubbles that I'm worried about.
it comes out when you rev but the water/coolant in the reservoir does not overflow.
I have a DE block with a VE head + T just in case this information will help but indeed we made sure both surface are cleaned before the gasket was placed. Grease was even applied to the gasket so it'll position itslef well when torquing.
