Soak your cork gaskets in the bathtub over night and they'll swell back to size and be useable.



They cracked as soon as I handled them, carefully I thought! That gasket guy has new ones, will use those when/if I pull the heads.
Guess I better stock up on 3/8 helicoil, taps and bolts as I know I'll have a session with ancient froze up bolts!

Sounds about right, Aaron. Strange thing is I got an old nos head gasket kit off epay last year simply for the cork valve cover gaskets ( no good of course,dryed out) not thinking I'd ever use the head gaskets themselves.
The radiator seems to be holding pressure over a number of days when you open the cap. But could still leak when hot I guess.

I'd say head gaskets and plane the heads, the 549 had head problems from what I understand.  A gent around here ran a 549 10 wheel dump truck up through the late 80's and it had problems a couple times and it went to IH when it did.

This sample is from cracking the oil pan drain plug, on what, one of the company trucks or yours.

Thought I would casually check the oil today..here is what I found. Obviously coolant. Level down in radiator of course. But no oil in coolant and no other symptoms like fouled plugs, blowby, bubbling in radiator, water out exhaust. etc. First thought was oil cooler, bypassed just now but no sign of oil in cooler in/out water connections. Wishful thinking is air compressor. Since the compressor gets oil more or less "sprayed" in and drains by gravity to block it seems to me that would result in water to oil but no water back int cooling system.
Thoughts? If it is worse than a blown head gasket this engine/truck is scrap.
