is the head warped or cracked? how are the valves seating (any gunk, damage)?

Sounds like you mite need to find a shop that can repair your unit properly the first time.

I stopped counting the number of head gaskets I've replaced and not one has came back blown.

I was putting new head gasket on my kohler 25hp last nite, ready to tork bolts n one is stripped. one with the alignment insert grrrrr. u think thread restore kit stuff will be strong enough to fix?
