Question about 1983 Ford Ranger
You have to pull it aprt again even though you changed the head gasket,did you plane your heads first,you might have an uneaven surface,but once you pull the heads off,try to check the cylinders with a bright light,check around the top of the cylinders it usally cracks there,a hairlane crack is all it takes,your probally going to have to pull the motor,and bring it to a machine shop,they can plane the block,and heads,and they can check it for cracks,if you have a cracked block they can put a sleeve in the cylinder thats cracked,but if I was you I would grab a junkyard motor and throw it in,I dont know what condition your truck is in but spending all that money on a 83 I would just grab junkyard motor
