Having more issues after rebuilding the head. Now that the car is pretty much all back together I seem to be losing coolant. Initially I had thought it was just coming from a loose coolant line to the turbo. So I snugged that up and it doesn't seem to leak anymore. However, I noticed that I still seem to be loosing some coolant. And there is more than a normal amount of moisture coming out of the tailpipe. So I am just trying to come us with all the possibilities to start checking. All gaskets were new when stuff was reattached to the head, including the coolant manifold o rings and the other odd shaped gasket. And obviously the headgasket is new. Anybody have any BTDT or directions to go in. This car is really starting to aggravate me. Thanks to all who responded to my post yesterday. They were most helpful and I am pursuing those ideas.
