I have a 67 Mustang with the 6 cylinders 200. Had motor + head completely rebuilt about 10,000 miles ago. Now the head gasket is weeping coolant by cylinders # 3 and 4. It is a very small leak. No coolant in oil. Apparently this is fairly common? I would like to try and retorque the head gasket before I go for full replacement. Should I do it with the motor hot or cold? Also anybody know how much I should torque it to?


You can re check the torque but I doubt it will stop the weaping. FWIW my 200 weaped in the same spot. I would first talk to the engine rebuilder before I did anything including retorquing the head.
