I have a couple of questions for you. What length connecting rods did you use? The Cometic head gaskets you used is C5249-030 the part number? If not post the part numbers you used. When installing the head gaskets did you use any type of sealer on them. Also did you install washers under the nuts on the head studs?

the rods came with eagle spec esp-13010030 i think stock length 5.7 ? forged 5140 i beam
i dont rember the part number of the gasket .thickness was on my machine shop invoice
as far as the studs yes on the washers that came with them and arp sealant (white tube ) under pressure they leak .today I talked with arp and they tell me remove all the water from the system remove one stud at a time blow out with compressed air squirt brake parts cleaner in the hole blow out again clean the threads and load the threads up with a lot of arp or permatex ptf and retork .
do only one at a time .What a pain in the *** !!!!!either the product works or not i say NO .I will b changing to permatex
