One question about the head gasket issue. Is changing a head gasket on a diesel inherently any more difficult than the same job on a gas engine? I've done the latter a couple of times, and I fully realize that a blown head gasket make simply be a symptom of a much more serious problem, but I was wondering how big a job changing the head gasket itself would be on a diesel. Who knows, my Yanmar may need such "surgery" in the future.
