I am working on a to-30 with my brother and may end up buying it from him. I saw some scuttlebut about headgaskets sealing. Is this really a big deal if it happens we have to remove the head?
Thanks all.

If the head and block are in good shape youre fine. Is always use a gasket sealer on the gasket when doing the installation.

My father rebuilt the engine on the TO30 I have when I was a pre-teen. I'm 70 now and the head gasket still doesn't leak.

I believe I got a head gasket set from this site a few years ago. I used a very thin layer of cup grease, per the manual, and it sealed up better than anything I have ever seen. Yes, I found that out when had to pull the head back off for a man made mistake. I was impressed to see the gasket rip itself in 1/2. I figure the chance of that head gasket ever leaking are minimal at best.
Cup grease, as you know, is the short fiber wheel bearing grease as you use on drum brakes or your front hubs.
