Don't pull the head, yet! Please....
What else could it be other than a blown gasket or cracked head? I don't have an oil cooler or tranny cooler.

What do you mean by wet and dry compression test? What ballpark numbers should I be looking for on a compression test? The test sets I've found so far only go to 300PSI.

Do you work on these for a living? Do you have experience with marine diesels?
