How most unusual for a K series to have Head Gasket problems... :roll:

Nice cars though John... I like them a lot and I believe the HG is easier to do than it looks at first glance...

Don't use a mls gasket if you don't have the spec'd 3 thou protrusion, you won't get the clamping force, good quality payen jobbie and she will be good.
Good cars though, great fun and lively engines, one of my favourite engines.
