head was torqued down to arps sequense and specs as for the right head gasket the one i got was for a d16y7 which is what i have.. But i did have to remove the rivits that hold the mls together because it did not clear the deck by a c hairyou did not torque the head properly or you didn't use the correct head gasket. Try a stock head gasket.
that is true... But i took the advise from someone who builds motors thought i could trust him will a stock hg hold boostput a stock head gasket on it, and see where you are at. Removing the rivets from a head gasket to install it; should have thrown a red flag.
i thought it was all of them.. I can see in the middle two i see it pudled up in there the two out side ones are just moist from what i can see through the spark plug hole ..but thats all i did was put the head back on filled the coolant and this is what happenstock hg will hold more than fine. Something still is not right though filled instantly. I went through something like that with my other ported head. The damn thing was cracked but it would fill up only on one cylinder not all of them. We need some pictures as their is something that you are missing or failing to tell us
Unless every single one of your sleeves are cracked enough to INSTANTLY fill the cylinders with water/coolant, I don't see the block being a problem.ok so everyone thinks it is a hg should i be worried about the block being cracked.. the head was already sent out to the machine shop and they said that it was good
yea and what are the odds of that happinig the coolant didnt do that before i took it apart so obv something went wrong with the install of new hg and arp head stubs prolly the torque.. when i took it back aprt tonight removing the head some of the studs came out. and some of them stayed in and the nuts came offUnless every single one of your sleeves are cracked enough to INSTANTLY fill the cylinders with water/coolant, I don't see the block being a problem.
