Two blown headgaskets and Two ruined heads all at One time

Well Ed and Columbus decided they would pull my heads and replace my blown headgaskets.

Yeah it was worse that just headgaskets. This the front head.

This is the rear head. Yes both blew and both heads are ruined.


  1. How did that happen? blowing gaskets - ok. blowing gasket and head - not funny. I'm seriously worried about my shovelhead.

    1. I don't think I did my heat cycles and re-torques right and I probably didn't break-in the motor easy enough either. I don't think blue gaskets are quite as good as they used to be. I will be using coppers next time. Less than 200 miles on this motor.
