New-to-me-560's head gasket failed. Engine had recently been rebuilt, and it was fine when I bought it - but now leaking between cylinders 2&3 and 4&5.
I checked the head, it's perfectly flat.
Sleeve protrusions are all well under the .006 spec from the manual.
So I'm not sure exactly why it failed. The gasket that was on there has no markings at all. silver on the bottom copper on top.
I've tried researching a bit for a gasket recommendation, but can't find anything definitive - some say to stay away from felpro - others say no problem.
Either way - I've yet to see a manufacturer's name on any gasket listed for sale on line, so I wouldn't even know what to go for a specific brand if I knew what I wanted.
Figured I'd like to throw it out there to the group for opinions.
Any known good gasket manufacturers - and/or a good source to purchase from?
Seems these tractors are known for head gasket trouble, so I want to try to do everything just right here.
