YTour head might be cracked, ive cracked two so far :wink: and its still ran fine, maybe a touch sluggish. Other than that, the only sympton was going through two and a half litres of water every hour.... and the milky oil. The first head to go didnt leak as fast but. Thought id do a better job next time....

ford heads have a tendancey to go 'soft' and are prone to cracks. Most places wil pressure/crack/flow test the head before the shave it. but i would ask to make sure
