The orignal factor gasket Leaking on front (right) passenger corner of head externally only. My old farm service truck with 240,000 miles. What's the standard sorta go to head gasket for these old motors. Was gonna order one online and lots of options I see.

Mine leaked the same way. Ordered up an "engine tech" gasket set from rockauto, and got new head bolts from fastenal.

Lo and behold.... when I dont drive 75mph for hours at a time, the gasket doesn't leak. 2-3 years have gone by and i havent changed it.

Yeah mine started out really slow. But over time now it leaks when at operating temp. Only really gets put to use a few months out the year.

Have gotten more time out of a couple of them by checking the headbolts
