blew my head gasket
my truck has been overheating and blowing off the coolant resivors lid. and water was rusty as ****. so i did a flush and a new thermostat because it was stuck open. didnt fix it. let it sit for a day and noticed the resivor was full so i drained a gallon out of it to make it to the fill line and re added the rest to the radiator. didnt work, so i had it towed to the el shopo and they said head gasket they did the die test and said it instally turned blue. so tomorrow i am getting a uhaul trailer and towing it 30 miles to my buddies and sunday tearing the top end down so monday i can get the heads to the machine shop and try to get it back together next week.
anyone done this job? how hard and how long did it take? any tricks? i have done head gaskets before, just never on my own vehicles.
