Engine Cooling problem
1966 Ford Galaxie V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic
O.K. I just replaced the head gaskets on my ford 289 because I took of the heads to port/polish, and also to replace the valves. I have done an engine rebuild before, so I figured this would be pretty streight forward, but I am having issues.
I torqued the head bolts to 65lbs per specs(65-70lbs). Should I torque them to 70 to see if that helps? Both heads are leaking coolant outside the engine and I'm not sure 5 more lbs of pressure would stop that. I made sure to have "FRONT" in the front, so I'm not sure what when wrong.
have the same problem?
