Hey guys i fixed that water leak i had from water pump and i went for a drive today and u wouldn't beleave it she did the dog on my and water in the oil.

Im hopping it just the gasket so bad but at same time not. I would love to slap a XR6 head on LOL

I was thinking of putting a better head gasket in or something like a copper one or something

What do u guys recon the best gaskets to use????

Im not ganna lie i do have a heavy foot so something that will last would be great

also i got to put extractors on and that head so i was thinking of a ACL top end kit with a copper head gasket or just buy one seperate if can't get it in the kit.

If i remember right u got to get the head machined to fit a copper head gasket right???

So what do u guys think would be the best way to go?

AU head gaskets are good, they r metal and the equivilent of shaving the head 40 thou. and they will last a lot longer :wink:

You will probably need to machine the head anyway

AU head gasket on xr6 puts the CR up to about 9.6

I wouldnt bother with the copper head gasket.

Cam timing is not a problem. Firstly cable tie the timing chain to the camshaft sprocket. For the bottom end, don't worry there isn't enough room for the chain to clear the teeth on the crankshaft sprocket. The bottom guide prevents this.
