This is what can happen to your Triumph Stag V8 engine if you do not drain down the cylinder block.  Coolant finds it’s way past the inlet manifold gaskets and causes tremendous corrosion, which will now be very costly to repair!

However, don’t panic too much is you take your Stag off the road over the winter months.  If the engine is running well, this sort of damage is unlikely to occur during a winter lay-up.
