History- Boat purchased used 3 years ago. Operated a little. Got blow out of the fresh water cooling
and did a tear down to R&R the head Gasket
. Couldnt remove the head
. Took all day to wedge it up little by little to finally it was off. Soot from the combustion was packed in the studs causing the removal
Replaced the gasket
gasket and add the blue gasket sealer to water
ran 6 hours then blew gasket. Removed the head and took it TAD to find a crack. $1500 later on goes the recon head. Ran 3 hours and blew the head gasket again. Removed the head and got a Victor head gasket which was .006 thinker. Ran a tap and die on all head studs and nuts torque it to 46 foot pounds+.
Ran 3 hours and blew #3 exhaust
spitting out from blown gasket.
So here we are. Something is not right with this engine
. Anyone seen this before.
I would think there is a jug or liner issue. Help!
Been there done that except, not this....
showing this vessel 1 hour before the gasket let go this time.
