Dodge 4.7L Blown Head Gasket

As we suspected the Dodge 4.7L  truck has a blown head gasket.  To be more specific it is the drivers side head gasket that was blown in two locations.  The odd thing about this is that this cylinder head has been removed before and some pretty suspect work has been done.  Both heads went off to  the machine shop to be  resurfaced.

Before the intake manifold is removed.

After the intake was removed.

Mark the timing chain and the camshaft sprocket before removing the tensioners and the camshaft.

The red ellipse shows where the head gasket was not sealing.

This is the right cylinder head and you can see that it was sealing all the way around the cylinders.
