    After cleaning the area I'd be working in I decided to inspect everything before taking it apart. I found some things need to be replaced. After 13+ years there's a lot of rubber...

    In addition to either failed head gaskets or detached cylinder liners, the 2.8 had a bad case of block rot. I had filled two holes with engine epoxy but oil was starting to leak out again.
