Hey guys my mate bent a conrod in his td42 and i replaced the rod and head gasket etc and it seems to be running great, I have exellant compression again but i have oil leaking out of the head gasket and down the side of the block. Is this normal for the first 30 kms of driving? It is not pissing out but is still a bit there. On the exhaust side of the engine. I used a ACL head gasket which was supposed to be the bees knees in head gaskets. It cost $215 just for the gasket. I torqued the head down to specs in two stages and thought i'd done everything perfectly but just the oil leaks? Do you need to retorque these once hot? Any suggestions muchly appreciated. Thanks guys
