Leaking cometic's on a perfectly machined deck and head surfaces without any type of sealant. Stopped leaking after 2 re torque's of the heads.

Thats what most guys fail to do . Keep torking it after every heat cycle after it cools down over night, until they stop moving. I have zero issues with water and cylinder sealing...

That’s cause there’s only one. Half the surface area to develop a leak. And the porosity of the alluminum:head acts as a softer material like a copper gasket.

No. It doesnt weep because i know the proper procedure of torquing a head down between heat cycles... ...

I was busting your azz if you hadn’t noticed.

But I don’t think it has anything to do with torque in many cases it’s just not a smooth enough surface without the ra50 finish, or a slightly warped deck.

Every time i built a motor it lost its torque after a heat cycle where i had to retorque more then once to get it to stop losening up.. If i didnt retorque it wouldnt be long and the gasket would start to fail.. Ive learned to keek on it always and never say "i just torked them there ok" Have to keep at it all the time...

Maybe if you both argue with me for a while you’ll stop arguing with each other for 5 min.
