I have mentioined this previously I think - I have a l971 Johnson Surfer 19'
runabout with the 307 Chevy 210 hp engine.

The oil had water mixed with it and when I drained it, the oil was the
of molassas.

I suspect a bad intake manifold gasket as there is an Edelbrock intake
manifold on the engine rather than the chevy version.

Has anyone else had this problem before ? The freeze plugs all look fine
and overall, the boat is in above average condition for its' age. The boat
started up fine and idled smoothly right after I bought it 2 years ago.

I've just finished up putting a composite deck board floor in my 20' pontoon
boat and once it is back in service, I plan to start on the Surfer.

Any suggestions would be appreciated..
