Popped a Head gasket

Yep went pop.........Anyway is there one particular brand you guys are using or is the Fel-pro alright to use?.
I guess this is a good time for head studs and vavle springs.

I agree with Luke. Sorry to hear about the head gasket Kenny, but it could have been much worse.

COMETICS!!! Take your pick on the studs. We have been using ARP's and Cometics. Not one leak in over 2 years.

Re: Popped a Head gasket

With stock rods, those stock gaskets should be fine. Besides, they make a great fuseable link.

Cometics. Stock gaskets are going to let go again quick. They aren't worth a crap without lots of miles on them. Once they've got 150 or so thousand miles on em they become "one" with the heads and block.

BTW, keep an eye out for the blown cylinder to have a nice little window below it in the near future.

Uhhhhhhhhh, where's Lott hiding? Stock gaskets should be just fine, for those stock rods.

I don't think Kenny restarted his engine after it blew the gasket.
