Can intake/ex gasket cause a skip?

Postby Bamacub » Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:47 am

I will try to make along story short. Split tractor for trowout bearing change & rear seal fix. Back together no problem. Manifold had pipe welded in, so I changed it. I used the old gasket. Engine had a miss on #3. Pulled manifold swaped gasket front to rear now the miss is#2. Engine ran good before work, no stuck valves, good compression. Have gasket ordered.

Short answer, Yes. Wait until new gasket installed. If skip persists try unlit propane torch around gasket area. If gasket leaking, the skip/miss will cease when the unlit propane is drawn into the engine at leak site.
I have an excuse. CRS.
