    Did you ever overheat the engine by any chance. If I didn't find any breaks or cracks I would suggest using a straightedge to make sure that the block and the cylinder head are still straight with no warpage.

    will do, thanks. Also there is a timing "rubber" belt; how to make sure timing is set correctly when the head is put back on? thanks.

    thanks, need all of the information that I can get as I am not a mechanic and am working on replacing the head gasket on my 87 D 50 2.0 Liter.
    Was smoking and finally would not start. pulled head off and milky oil was in 2 and 3. Head straight, not warped, so ordered head gasket and will install. Boy o boy is there a lot of vacuum lines on the carb. Hope I can get them all back. what if I can't?

    There should be a diagram for the vacuum lines somewhere here. Maybe even in a chiltons manual. I'm not sure if they do it on these mitsubishis but I know alot of the mazda guys replace the carb with a weber and it so much more simple and really cleans up the engine bay.
