Re: I had a breakdown today...
I believe the head is where it gets hot the most being where it ignites and explodes so I don't recommend using this gasket maker there. That's why they put a metal gasket on the head for this very reason. I've never heard of this metal gasket being blown. I remember when my base gasket blew, it sounded like I had a blow out on my tires. When I came home and examine, the tires were ok, so I knew it had to be one of the gaskets. When I took off the cylinder, sure enough it was blown on the right side, exactly where I heard the presssssshh!
