What are you filling the heads with?

CAT has done this in retaliation to people doing overhauls and applying OPT coverage on engines that never had the protrusion checked. You end up with an overhaul at 1.2m and back apart by 1.5m

We are seeing the shim gaskets leak oil with the higher protrusion, and no aviation sealer applied.

I'll have to get some more information and report back.
I see the ad is still up for the 359 you posted. Have you looked at it in person?

why won't you buy one with aluminum frame?

I haven't had a chance to look at it. I had to leave town for work. I got back the other day so I might get a chance to look at it.

Just a little nervous of the aluminum cracking and what not.
