Default Re: black foam in coolant after top end rebuild

You really want the block tester kit with the blue die that changes color if hydrocarbons are detected in the coolant system. The kit is around $25 at most stores and will give you a definitive answer as to what the bubbles are. All that clean water May be dissolving some of the deposits in the block or bottom of the radiator. I hope your head gaskets are sealed. Were the heads checked for cracks? And what cylinder(s) were leaking?
