Re: Atomic 4 - head off, leave studs or remove/clean/install?
At least I permatexed under the bolt heads "in case" steam tried getting thru..
Sorry to hear you had a less then stellar experience there. Seems to me you did pretty good work and nicely documented too.
When I replaced my engine gaskets I did not use Permatex on the studs and I did/do sometimes get some steam through one bolt. Good call.
