If it runs ok & there isn't bunch of steam coming from the exaust , the oil cooler may be a good place to start, alot less work.... Do you have a way to pressurize the system?...A head gasket will usually over pressurize & blow coolant out of the fill opening....

Have you been needing to add coolant?....
