major leak coolant in oil pan
I've just finished a rebuild on a 302. All done, put in the oil, and filled the radiator. Virtually all the coolant went directly in the oil pan. I have the oil pan drain plug removed and the top radiator hose. If I pour coolant in the radiator I can hear it going into the oil pan about as fast as I add it to the radiator. What could cause this. I tend to think something wrong in the oil pan or timing cover installation. Your opinions please?
