327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

-fresh 327 0.60 small journal rebuild
-joe gibbs br30 oil
-all water in cooling rad cap off
-ran engine for 20 mins 1800-2000 rpm
-60psi oil
-coolant at 180 then climbed to 200 but did not have fan on front of car and no fan shroud so maybe that is why

PROBLEMS I NEED HELP WITH

-during intial break in @ 20 min mark turned the car off and it puked all the water out of the radiator all the water prob like 10 litres of water, so I refilled it with boiling hot water from the tap to let it cool down which it did after about 30-60 mins

-next day went to start it up, and within 10 seconds it lost all the oil on the floor (OUCH $75 bucks on the floor).
-it leaked and blew the seal between the stock ac delco oil filter adapter and block
-this is the same adapter that was on it before the rebuild
-the seal was not round as it had a 1 inch deformation towards the center as if someone pushed it in toward the center bolt.


ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT

Re: 327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

Why would you run with the rad cap off? Just sounds like you need a new seal on the adapter.

Can you take a picture of the seal? I'm having a hard time imagining what happened.

Re: 327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

Is this an adapter to use a spin on filter or the stock one for the canister setup?

Re: 327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

Re: 327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

Hmm, my adapter is a mr. gasket brand from 1980 and I dont remember. Its a gm part youre using? Can you look it up and maybe it will specify a gasket? This is the o-ring type gasket specified for a trans dapt kit. May be the same.

You could even just buy a whole new adapter kit too. Its cheap enough.

That is what I used on mine, and it has been like that for 15 years.

Re: 327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

I think you need to run a fan to cool things down a bit and use antifreeze as well next time.
Quote from online.
On the other hand, if the engine coolant gets too hot, it might boil while inside the engine, causing voids (pockets of steam), leading to localized hot spots and the catastrophic failure of the engine. If plain water were to be used as an engine coolant, it would promote galvanic corrosion. Proper engine coolant and a pressurized coolant system can help obviate the problems which make plain water incompatible with automotive engines. With proper antifreeze, a wide temperature range can be tolerated by the engine coolant, such as −34 F (−37 C) to +265 F (129 C) for 50% (by volume) propylene glycol diluted with water and a 15 psi pressurized coolant system.[1][2]
Post a pic if you can.

The cartridge filter that I got the gasket from was a Fram CH200PL.

Ok thanks for all the info I did find the part number of what I used it is wix 15124 is the gasket and maybe I should just put a new gasket and also I lost all the break in oil so should I just use conventional oil now cause I don't wanna spend all the at that money again

Re: 327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

So does anyone else think that the problem is the install of the seal or you think it is the oil pump

Re: 327 oil filter adapter gasket blew

Why don't you just buy a new oil filter adapter that comes with a gasket from Jegs. Here a link to Jegs website. http://www.jegs.com/i/Chevrolet-Perf...oductId=763945

It sounded like the gasket was deformed to begin with. If you go with conventional oil, I would add a bottle of the GM EOS.
