    Within the last month both of my gravely walkbehinds have blown head gaskets,, they havent been in use since november, only started to run fresh fuel in the carbs....

    Could anything have cause this??? or is this pure coincidence??

    The kawis that I have seen with blown head gaskes were due to misadjusted valves and/or bent pushrods.
