  • 18 Answers 150 bucks- works great, I tried it. But if you are pushing exhaust gasses through the coolant system and radiator, dont get this stuff, it wont work. It works great if you are burning antifreeze ( steam through the tailpipe) Head gasket job on these old trucks are not that difficult. But make sure you have the head checked for warpage and cracks or a replaced head gasket will fail again.( And Thermagasket will be a waste of money) Head gasket failure comes from excessive heat( overheating) and will cause cracks and warpage to the cylinder head.
