Exclamation ATTN BLOWN HEAD GASKETS

After talking to a few others about thier head gaskets blowing i am tryin to see if the failures are only occuring around certain build dates.

If you have blown your head gasket let me know what your build date is, and if you were tuned or not.

Since this motor came out I've never put head gaskets in one for a coolant loss failure. I've put a head on one for a hung valve and a couple complete engines, but never head gaskets.

I'm loosing about 12-16 oz of coolant every 5k and not sure where its going. my blackstone report is showing high potassium so i'm thinking its getting into the engine. Any ideas? Could it be a head gasket? I'm only running the 75 tune. Tried the 210 tune for a week or so but didn't want to damage the engine so went back to the 75.

Hey Sawtooth that coolant could be leaking through a glow plug sleeve. Vibrations breaking the threadlocker holding the sleeve in.
