SO clever me. Had head skimmed, ground in valves, new gasket in place then torqued everything down correctly. Then found the oil way blanking plugs I had forgotten to replace. DUH ! :nono:

Now at least one of these is behind a head bolt so if I remove just that one almost certainly warp head. So guess I have to remove head properly, replace plugs and then replace head. Not sure where the other three plugs are yet.

Now the million dollar question is do I need to replace the brand new head gasket that has never been run before ?. Or can I just use the new one I have just re-fitted. This is on a 306 1.9TD by the way (XUD9TE)

Any advice on this would be welcome.

Yes, a new gasket is required. Once it's been compressed by the torqueing of the head it won't comrpessproperly a 2nd time. considering the damage HGF can do you'd be madder than Gordon brown on acid to want to risk.

Thanks

Thanks for that. Pretty much guessed that would be the answer but it pays to ask around.:thumb:

You are best replacing the head gasket again. It's either a few extra quid now or a couple of hundred later if you don't
