Maxi Head Leak

Brenan Chambers /

Serious head leak, you can actually see smoke puffing out of it. I had a friend mill down the head a while back, worked just fine until recently. Something must be warped, its done. I tried it with 2 different heads, a milled one and one new, same problem.

So, should I even bother trying to make a repair or should i just replace the whole cylinder, get a whole new kit. Also, if kitting is the best option, which should I choose?

Kits depend on your level of tuning.

Anneal the metal gasket and then re torque.

Oh yeah, what John said.

Also make sure that you torque evenly when you install the head. It should be a gradual process so that you don't over torque anywhere.
