    I read somewhere that 86 svo's came with 8.8 rear ends , is this a fact or how can you tell without pulling the cover?

    LMR has them in charcoal which should be the correct color. Do not have first hand experience with it though.

    I know. But it leaked before we got the new head and I figured a copper gasket would fix that. Not so far.

    If you have an E6 there should not be a gasket between the head and the exhaust manifold

    Maybe start with just a couple PSI - until the size of the leak is ID'd. Keep in mind that leaks will put sticky coolant all over. Rinse with lots of...

    Go to O’Reillys and borrow a cooling system pressure tester, pump your system up to 10-12 psi, and then look for your leak.

    I have used baby powder to find leaks before but wash it off soon after or it will bake on and never come off.
