See if i use a sanding block over the whole head it might come out??

one bolt was really really tight and another was really loose but i cant remember if the loose or tight bolt was where the gasket went.

anyone have any ideas why a chunk like that was missing could it be coasued by overtighning or overheating?? or just failure

more then likely its a detonation issue.

you'll need to have the head shaved or it going to blow out there again.

Lookin at the rusty appearence in the water ports.....lack of coolant/inhibitor changes????
Thats not good either............been off before too...Monotorque gasket.
Use Hylomar on the new gasket.....will keep it stuck.
