Change head gaskets while engine in the truck?
I have been loosing about 1/4" coolant every 2 weeks out of my degas bottle. I've looked everywhere - I still have not found my coolant leak, I just ordered a UV dye that is compatible with CAT ELC coolant and plan to pick up a blacklight bulb from from Home Depot.
If I still can't see anything - next up is a block test/ pressure test.
Oil still looks water free.
Ok - so worst case scenario, I have a blown head gasket. (Cracked block or head would be worse, I know) I doubt I have blown a gasket, but I want to be ready for it if I have to end up doing them. Can I change the gaskets in the truck? Has anyone out there done it that can offer some advice? I would use studs going back together and do the valve springs while it was apart, but I would really not want to have to go down this road. How heavy are the heads?
That's what makes it look hard!
