Re: Aftermarket headgaskets?

The reason that i don't like the factory design is because I don't feel that the blue sealing surface is large enough. I have heard,and I will admit this is by hearsay that any minor imperfection in the head or block will not let the gaskets seal properly.As far as a stock truck is concerned i haven't ever seen a repeat failure.But I did have on that had tuning,injectors,and studs blow the headgaskets again after around 6,000 to 8,000 miles later.(Again this is just my personal opinion)

Re: Aftermarket headgaskets?

I have seen alot of the heads that are poor machining from the factory. I have seen them so rough it was horrible and they were six thousanths out of flat. That will never let an MLS seal up. I own four sets of heads and they were all far from flat. I have one set that is so cracked out also, between all valves and to all glow olug holes.
