Head gasket help

I apologize this isn't a powerstroke issue but hope someone can help me out cause I need an answer quick and this is the best forum that I'm with. It's a 3 cylinder diesel kubota and there is pressure coming out rad cap and white smoke coming from exhaust. 0.004 inch warpage on head. Put in new head gasket. First start up, no smoke at all, very very little pressure out of rad. Ran perfect. Let cool, start back up and white smoke instantly pours out of exhaust and lots of pressure out of rad. Cleared up a bit as it got warmer but still not right. Is the warpage bad enough or not? I didn't think it was. Anything else that could be wrong? Thanks.

Are they pressurized coolant systems like the 6.0?

The heads sound little off too. Did you get them inspected for cracks etc?

Yes it's pressurized. I didn't have it checked for cracks though.

A common issue with our 6.0s heads were removed, not inspected then thy wonder why even with studs they still leaked.

I've never seen a kabota blow a head before so maybe get yours inspected and go from there?

If a head is shaved does anything else have to happen like with valves or anything?
