Thanks for the info. So you think the gasket and head could be damaged driving in the red for a mile or two at 1k rpm? I know it wasn't any further. Just asking. I have been driving off and on today and the coolant has not dropped below where it was first thing this am after last nights bleed and test run

If there is any coolant in there it is usually in the bottom of the sump (cool engine) and you can see it in the bottom of the jar. You can also just lift out the oil filter and take a close look at the oil on the filter. If it looks milky that is a bad sign.
