Re: Knucklehead incident
Darn good thing you didn't start it with antifreeze in the oil - it will eat your bearings up. You are probably OK because the oil will float on top of the antifreeze, which means the antifreeze should have been on the bottom of the pan. Still, you probably have a 5 quart pan, and 1 gallon = 4 quarts, meaning you may have had enough AF in there to get above the level of the crank. Go real easy on it until you are sure that all of the AF has been flushed out and burned off.
