I'm thinking my next go around build will be sending the block off to Darton to be sleeved, and get a machine shop to do 1/2" head studs. I've been having some cooling issues, trying to figure out if it's a gasket issue but we'll see, next time want to clamp that bastard as good as possible. What kind of HG are you going with? I went with a stock HR headgasket on my build but in hind site I'm thinking of going with like an HKS next time around. Granted if a sleeve sinks this is all moot, hopefully going to Darton directly will mitigate that.

always get new headgaskets and whenever you remove your head for any reason you can never reuse your headgaskets period. can only be used 1 time.
I completely started over. Stock block ect bore honed decked. Apparently the surface of my old motor wasn't decked properly for the correct MLS gasket

Using HR gasket. I was back and forth with that whole thing as well. Idk researched and a lot of guys are running big power with the stock HR gaskets. Talk to builder after builder and seemed that HR was the way to go. With the leaking issues I had before I was willing and ready to drop the 5 bucks or however much they were just for a piece of mind. I was told I would just be wasting my money!!! Idk this is a whole learning experience. As far as bolting on stuff and installing it. That's what I did last time. I learning what and why now. Fingers crossed. I should be fine tho. Had a very reputable shop do all mechiene work and assembled the bottom end so I'm pretty confident.

Sucks!!!! I'm mean really who can you trust these days. It don't matter who it is. Unless you have equipment and know how to do that kinda work you don't know what they are doing. You just hope it's done right. But I know when u took it I. There soon as he seen the finish he said " not the right finish " took out the little book thing he had with all the finishes for all the types of HG and pointed Rt to it and said this is it. So yeah I got taken for a ride as well!!! Hope ya worked it out. Still dealing with it ? Or did you get it right?

I have a quick question off topic. CJM twin pump. Anyone know if I solder a 2.4k ohm resist in the the end to to tank temp wire. Do I just put the other end to ground?

I went with HR gaskets simply to put a 'weak link' in my build...but in reality, the best (or worst) head gaskets will not save you from a uneven block/head connection nor a bad tune!

the motor last 6-7 yrs, but always had little coolant/headgasket type issues. this last season it finally got to the point I had to pull it apart. machine shop is out of business, so no recourse that way. I rebuilt the motor and moved on

looking good! cant wait to see it running!

What sealant did you use? Im planning to use the Honda gasket sealer as it seems to be one of the best. I used permatex red but it leaks. probably too soft.

Thanks man!! Ultra gray. What was used last time and no issues. Seems to be the one to use according to mostly everyone I talked to and from what I read about. Crossing my fingers again!!!! Look man I did it the way it said and I read it over and over to make sure I did it right so hopefully I'm good!!!

Cool good to know. I think the red was just too soft. It worked fine as long as theres no pressure, but my timing cover and oil pan have small leaks. ILl take a look at the ultra gray

Yeah man idk exactly what the red is for. You would have to read up on it. All u know is I was told not to use it by several people. The ultra gray was the way to go!!

thanks for the info!! how long until you think it will be up and running? hope to see you make big power. Seeing this is definitely motivational, though I am still in the process of collecting the parts for my build.
