Last summer I had to do some head work on my 1940 Allis C. Right from the get go the head gasket had trouble seating. It was a Mahle gasket set, with the modern dark gray fibrous material. After several re-torquing of the head bolts, it seemed to stop. Well, now if find I have coolant in the oil and oil in the coolant. Also, #1 cylinder is getting oil in it.
The engine starts and runs great. Purrs, had lots of power, etc.
Before I take it apart, I wanted to see what recommendations you have for head gaskets and how to install them. I am toying with the idea of pulling the sleeves and replacing the oil rings just in case that is an issue.
What say you? Any help would be appreciated.
