Ed can do that with the right front also. He gets an additional 2 heat cycles out of the fronts.

We took the engine down this morning and found that the head gaskets failed on both sides, between 3/5 and between 4/6. This is a brand that has been failure proof for a long time. These were probably a new manufacturer in China or the equivalent. I saved everything by shutting it off early. No other damage.

Check with Blanchard, zero failures with the GM gaskets, he can give you the part numbers if you are interested.

Did you use 305 gaskets with the aluminum heads???? If so that is definately an issue.

Nope! Looked like a bad set of a brand and part number that had been fail safe over many builds. Probably Chinese crap like we have seen with gears and rods.

I caught the inside curbing a couple of times Tues morning in turn 6 and got the rear tire in the air, too.
