Can coolant get into oil OTHER than head gasket??
I have not done compression test yet, this weekend.
Oil does appear to be cloudy, will check that more carefully also.
However, to use an entire overflow bottle of coolant in less than 80 miles, I would think it would be visible burning off as steam out the pipes, or at least steam clean the plugs from the action.
Plugs look fine.
Is there a way for coolant to get into the oil other than past a head gasket?
Any seal(s) in/around the water pump area?
Haven't gotten into this area of a Vulcan 750 so I have no experience.
I want to fix it, just want to be sure I AM Fixing the right thing.
Thanks in advance as always.
