SPI cylinder head gasket recommendation
 
Hi folks,

I have replaced the cylinder head of my car.

When I fill the coolant, the coolant is leaking from the head gasket.

Can anyone recommend a high quality head gasket so I can do it again.

Thank you very much.

Any gasket you get will work, you have to be 120% certain that both the block AND head is clean and flat, any old gasket material left on the block or head will not allow a good seal. Also use the copper spray gasket on the head gasket before installing it

Thanks a lot, when I installing the head gasket I've go check if I need something to seal it, most comments donot recommend use any maker.

So for this spray only spray on the gasket not on the head or block, right ?
