"Hi Joe, Long time... Yep, between the stock and fel pro. Cat's fine, totally clean.  NO coolant leaks, ever.  It just finally got through the fire ring between 3 and 4.  Since the stock gasket is not in "stock"…"

"Your stock one lasted 30 years why gamble with a different brand on someone's opinion? As long as the head is off have checked for straightness. The only job that sucks more than a headgasket is doing a second headgasket shortly afterwards.…"

Blown head gasket.... WHICH gasket to buy as replacement?

Well, after 32 years on the original engine, the head gasket blew between cylinders 3 and 4 causing loud knocking under load.  I nursed it home using high rpm/low torque to not put any stress on the engine, which worked well.You know, this truck has NEVER, not one single time, left me stranded in all those years.  This was no exception.  It got me home.Anyway, time to finally change the gasket.  This engine was NEVER overheated or ran hot.  So it's probably fine.  Yes, I may have been remiss on…See More

"More likely your truck is either leaking from the corner of the windshield or the breather for the fresh air intake under the cowel.  The water always finds itself under the floor mats and rusts out the mounts and floor pan."
