Blowing up? How so? What pressure radiator cap do you use?

Best Answer

When you replaced the headgasket did you have the head shaved?

I'm using 13 lb psi radiator cap And had the head rebuild


Cap pressure is within range, have you done a block check just to make sure the head is sealed properly?
