There is a fair amount of residue on the block from the old head gasket. Seems the fel-pro gasket is made of some material that basically melts (or seems that way). I purchased some foam gasket...

Robbie stopped by the other day. That guy knows his stuff. It turns out the valve seat is to blame for #2 not having compression. Since I run propane he recommended that I rebuild the head with...

I haven't gotten around to that yet. Wasn't sure if it was needed since I have no compression on that cyl and the plug looked like somebody hit it with a hammer. Funny thing is that the motor still...
