|ezno||Front and rear look the same, thanks for the advice. Everything I've done on my RC-51 the "FIRST TIME" always seems to leave me screeming or crying in the garage I still love doing it.|

|dansp1||looking at the pics it looks as though it is more likely that the water got in as you were taking the head off, compare the piston and valves on both heads, if they look the same then that is probably the case, if the front one is much cleaner than the rear it maybe that the headgasket has been leaking.|

|ezno||rear cylinder is dry. Nothing wrong with engine, just taking the heads off to send to Rodger in the uk|

|dansp1||if you didny have the plugs out it is possible there was some coolant left in the head that went into the bore, how do the cylinders compare? what's the background why are you tearing the motor down?|

|ezno||I did not remove the plugs|

I found this on a car forum, could this be it?
"Well, it sounds like you did not drain the engine block before you took off the cylinder heads. The head bolts go straight into the water jackets of the engine block"

when you rotated the crank the plugs were out right? do you have a blocked drain on the head?
There's a small hole that allows water to drain out of the area around the plug, if it blocks it could fill with water

|ezno||When I hand turned (rotated) the crankshaft to align the index lines on the cams, could this have pumped some excess water in their?|
