The first gasket was a copper gasket that came with the engine kit that I got from Murphys, the second was a Felpro gasket. Thats whats in it now, after reading the reply from Gary I guess its coming back off too.

What size head bolts are used on a 560 is it a gas or diesel I know some people that had this problem before with the 282 diesels in the 560 and the changed out the head with a head from a 706 with the 282 diesel which used one size bigger head bolts and drilled out and retaped the block for the bigger head bolts and make sure the bolts arnt bottoming out and use good head bolts from case in or arp my other question is are u running a turbo that can have some impact on this problem depending on how much boost pressure it has although I have run into the same problem on our 706 diesel with pump opened up a bit and the timeing advanced a lil running 3100 rpms on the dyno and put out 130hp and it would start to weep coolant out from the very back side of the head

Felpro gaskets last about 1 hour for me. The company should be ashamed. They probably dont test their headgaskets. Ive talked to the company rep and they dont seem to care
