Great to hear. Over here with your donor engine I have about 13,000 on my rebuild. Its running great. Its very strange to have zero oil consumption between changes. Plainly your rings were good! I think I finally tracked down the last super-slow coolant loss to the overflow bottle cap, but sending oil to Blackstone just to be sure. The gasket was a bit crusty so I gave it a good scrub and will see if that lets it seal. Otherwise the cap is about $10. Cap and bottle around $80. The triple fan pulley ever so slightly hits the back of the A/C belt so I plan to swap that out. I also have a PS line weep - I think the low pressure return from the gearbox. And still lousy fuel mileage and inherent traction control byproduct of a tractor engine.
