    When I brought the cylinder heads to the machine shop so they can look at them and everything both of them were cracked but the passenger side cracked in between so that was the one that was leaking mostly the other one just started cracking so I had to buy two rebuilt heads. My head gaskets were still the original from 95 and everything was still original in that truck when I took it apart it was crazy getting those manifolds off they were a b****

    Hell yeah I'm sure it didn't want to come apart at all. But I'm glad to hear you got after it I'm sure you will be driving it soon if not already
