Re: I had a breakdown today...
That's great if you are willing to run the testing, Vince!
I'm a real hack, but prefer to do quite a few things the old-school way.
...but I've never lost a head gasket on a motor I built!
I've known guys with lapped heads that ran nothing but a coat of silver spray paint! Not me! lol
Then another fellow who gave axle grease a try... that was a messy failure !
I do know the permatex products are very good... they use em quite a bit on aircraft engines, so that says a lot, to me.
I'll look forward to seeing your results.
