    Some of you might know I did the head gaskets at the start of the new year. I asked a bunch of questions on here. Here's the problem. I put about 4k on the truck now. The rear head on the driver side is not sealing right and oil is coming down. Can I take of the cover and redo then or what? I really hope I dont need to do that heads again. Thanks mIke

    The only thing is I think taking the fuel lines off is the most PITA! So if you can afford it I would just as well do the head gasket and of course the TTY bolts.
