    I've never had any trouble with the 1250's, i just put a little right stuff around the water passages and away we go. I use the 1262r's on my current setup and have yet to have a leak with them either

    just pulled the build sheet and receipts for ths engine. What was used is the 1011-2 head gaskets and the 1262 intake gasket. Shall I just replace the one head gasket with that same part number, keeping in mind the engine has roughly 1500 miles at most or would still reccommend doing both?

    1262's do not have the exhaust crossover cutout and neither do my heads, so looks like that one!

    Pull the one side off first and see whats going on if anything. I have just done one side before and had no trouble. Are these heads drilled for 1/2" studs?
