I have blown head gaskets at 33000 miles
The truck is solid and I’ve read this engine makes a better boat anchor then a motor.
Should I try new head gaskets? I only use the truck on the week ends, or should I replace with an completely different motor?
Problem with the hate2 engine is the upper cylinder walls are "free floating". This allows the walls to 'vibrate' a little causing the problem. Worken on way to many. Best bet is to install a cummins or a chatterpillar and acrap the hate2. You need special tools to tune the engine back up.
