Question #BR548. Engine...Kohler CV730

Condition....New engine..under 10 hours...leaking and using oil...head gasket problem

Situation...After having the head gasket replaced under warranty...now..not only is the engine still using and leaking oil from the head gasket...but there is also a hissing noise coming from the gasket...

Name That Failure

A)..Block dished out while cleaning the gasket area with a die grinder..new engine block ruined..
B)...Head bolts tightened with impact gun...stripped out threads in the block...new engine block ruined..
C)...The old head gasket still looked ok...so it was re used...
D)...Newly hired ace mechanic talks a better engine than he builds..
E)...Cyl head dished out while cleaning the gasket area with a die grinder...head out of flat.
F)...Head gasket never replaced...shop just filed the warranty and pocketed the money.
G)...Any of these could be the right answer...
