Two things to think about--if you used a shim gasket, I have finally been
convinced that copper wire superglued between the cylinder embossing is
extremely important. Dead soft light gauge copper--works great.
Second, if you did a lot of porting to the head, make sure you're not
actually experiencing a breakthrough into the water jacket. They can
manifest themselves as very small cracks. Don't ask me how I know this.

Subject: Re: GT-6 braided SS clutch line-Thank you
Hi everyone, I just wanted to send a belated thank you to all who helped
me with my quest for a SS braided clutch line on the GT6 last month. I
have been having trouble sending from the email address that I'm
subscribed to FOT with, so I wasn't able to thank the list at all.
Anyways, thank you!! I ended up buying a 16" length of hose with -4
fittings, then the proper adapters to plumb it up to the car. It worked
beautifully and I was ready to tear it up at TRF, but after two head
gaskets in the 24 hours prior to departing to Indiana, Pa, the car was
left home to play another day. Oh well, I guess it gives me something to
look into this winter, I have a sneaking suspicion that I have a warped
head. Thanks again!!!
