    Spent a few days last week replacing the head gasket on the 6by. Was heading down to the Mods gathering in sth Qld but didn't quite make it. Got down near Rocky way and had a low water alarm. Pulled up to check and found water ****ing out of the overflow tank. Thought I must have had a malfunctioning thermostat so I pulled the guts out of it and fired her up again. About 20k's down the road it comes on again so I guessed it was the head gasket and turned around. By taking the cap off the expansion tank I managed to get home with only 1 stop to refill the radiator. Then tossed some of my camping gear in the Falcon ute and headed off again. When I pulled the head this is what I found. Had been leaking under compression between cyl's 2 and 3. The head was slightly warped up in the center so i had to get it shaved. Some of the head bolts in the center were noticeably looser than the others so I think this problem may have been caused by human error on the assembly line. With the low k's mine has done I am sure it hasn't been tampered with before. All good now - just did a 650k round trip and goes like a ripper!!!6x6 centre console 143.jpg6x6 centre console 140.jpg6x6 centre console 144.jpg

    Always sad to hear about issues like this. Makes me paranoid.

    It was a bit annoying I must admit as I love driving the beast, in comparison the XR ute has no soul!!! I have never had this problem with a 4BD1 before and I have put a lot of K's on 3 motors over the years. I am pretty sure it was because it wasn't torqued down properly. At least you can keep going with these motors. I probably could have done the whole trip if I could have put up with stopping every 150k's or so to refill the radiator!

    Yeah I keep a full set of tools and parts on board just in case. My tom thumb pump leaked the other day and covered everything in oil, So i'm rethinking that a bit. That will be the day this happens lol.
