And if I had a brother, I wish he were like Samuel.
Walt is right. The car is testing you. There's no doubt in my mind
that you have the perseverance to beat it. Especially with Walt so
close by to help out. I had to import labor from out of state. ;-)

Walt/Sameul, I only have one concern. 235F is far beyond the blown
head gasket range. Any idea how long it ran that way? Before doing
anything else, I'd drain the oil and inspect for coolant and check
the coolant bottle for oil.

Hopefully it was only for a few minutes. I applaud Samuel for at
least checking the gauge and catching it. If the headgaskets are
still good then I'm betting I'll still be driving to Ft. Myers with
Samuel.
