 +==== Check oil smudge marks when removing the heads ====
 +
 +When dismantling the top end (or to bring parts to your mechanic)and before cleaning the head gaskets / surfaces, check them for oil smears. ((IronMick of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=1940586&​page=2)) \\
 +Smudge marks can be a give away as to where any leaks might occur. Also take a few pics of them (no flash, direct light and a steady hand). \\
 +The gasket has been known to raise around the head oil drain and only on the inside edge of the gasket. \\
 +So no outward sign of the leak. With the head removed an experienced eye may be able to spot the problem. \\
