When will it end

Went for about 2 hr ride today eveything went normal as far as oil press, water temp no problems went to load on trailer and fluid dripping from bottom, couldent tell where from. Got home and it was comming out waterpump breather hose and looks like this
I ordered mechanical seal, oil seal, bearing, sierclip and gaskets to rebuild waterpump. I am praying its not a headgasket as this was the first ride since breakin and i never even got on it yet
Oil dident look milky when i drained it, when i pulled stator cover it was just oil in bottom of motor no coolant. but when i pulled coolant lines off water pump oil was def in coolant
Any thoughts guys?

What is this a picture of? It is zoomed in so close I can't tell

If oil is coming out the oil seal is bad, if coolant coming out the water pump seal is bad

Here is what the coolant looks like that drained out the hoses at the pump
Should b green
It is a mix of oil and coolant, so i ordered both seals and bearing and gaskets for waterpump, but with that kind of mix of fluid can it b something else also?

My gut feeling tells me its a head gasket but i dont even have 10hrs on this motor i got remanned from nflow
And i did all the breakin properly
this is my oil i drained out, i dont think there is coolant in it. It feels nice and thick when i put my finger in it

So what you are saying is that you seem to be getting oil in your coolant but not coolant in your oil?????


What is a waterpump breather hose?

I knew there was a reason i like you Floyd, honestly i was thinking about that this morning while i was cutting grass, but i wont let it beat me. On a positive note it was my wifes first ride in it and she really like how comfy the seats were and being able to talk to eachother thru the incar com she loved that
If its just the seals in the waterpump no problem they r allready on order
The wife laughed when i showed her your post

Im still a little confused

Where is the information that makes you think oil is getting into your coolant?

You said something was coming out of the drain line.

If it is oil only coming out of that line it is the oil seal that is bad

Ok Todd, what was comming out that the water pump weephole drain line was black not just oil its a mix of oil and coolant. The fresh prestone green coolant has been in there about ten hours. When i drained fluid out waterpump this is what came out whats in that bowl has has a very thin consistany, u might not see it in the pic but there is a green tint to that dark color. If oil wasent in the coolant when i pulled the waterpump drain plug the fluid would b green
Hope that all makes sense

One thing i found on disassembly is the ceirclip for the impeller shaft was not in the slot its suppose to b in on the shaft, it was just on the shaft so i could slide the impeller right out without touching the clip, could that cause the problem if the impeller was just sliding in and out during operation?

Brian, did it ever overheat? I guess not cause I didn't see you say anything in regards to that.

That's a **** load of oil in that coolant.
