poxy bloomin' head gaskets

Post by rich the mechanic on Mon Jun 06, 2011 4:36 pm

Just had to remove the cylinder head again after I only fitted it on Thursday evening (I can get it off in about half an hour) when fitted and poured water in, it poured out the back and there is a half inch ish section thats failed on the top side of the gasket. Clare has just emailed the supplier and we are waiting for a response.

that depends on how bad it is and if you want to get into valve to piston clearence measuring but generally there will be max amount before you start to bother the water jacket I've just finished putting the head on again and it was using a cb22 charade head gasket.
