Thanks I'll try that. However I just found out today that my gasket wasn't the problem. I might have a cracked head or block. I had the head milled but didn't have it inspected for cracks. Coolant is still leaking into the oil. So what are the odds it is a cracked block and not just the head? I'm thinking since the block is cast iron I have a good chance it's just the head.

I drove it for about 15 miles without any coolant and then when I pulled over I poured in cold water which just steamed (I know dumb idea).
