Oh man, and to think that those were one of the nicest done heads I had seen ever!
Actually amazing how little damage has been done.
How did this happen? Any 'clues'? Do you run a head temp gauge?
This was cylinder 1 right? Usually one of the coolest running ones...

BTW, do you know why you have a 5th stud on the top side? IF you would do a 5th stud, between the bottom row would seem more logical, as the bottom head studs are the ones that are longer, so they expand more and would easier loose compression that way at the underside (also the exhaust side to make things worse)...

Thanks for sharing.

Regards,
Walter
