I've done a couple coolant flushes, but as someone pointed out, I never checked the pickup line from the reservoir tube...I know at least all the external hoses are fine, as I've taken them all off at one point. I flushed the oil line that bolts to the outside of the motor, and blew compressed air through some of the passage holes that I could get to...

Maybe tomorrow, but I'm going to clean, and try re-using the MLS style gasket, this time coated in Copper Coat, and with a .020" shim washer under the head stud acorn nuts, in an effort to generate more clamping force on the gasket...
