Friend was given a 54 inch craftsman mower. Voltage regulator was fired. Replaced it and got it running. Left head gasket was leaking. So friend replace gasket and coated it with #2 permatex. New gasket is leaking.
So is using permatex on head gasket a bad idea? I've never used anything on head gaskets.
Friend has no manual and doesn't know torque sequence either.
Best we could find head bolt torque is about 20#ft.
