B5254T2 Air coming between cylinders

Post by h20ham »

I am getting air from #4 leaks out #3&1. #3 leaks out #1. 5 leaks out 1 &3 much less
All out the spark plug holes
Borescope shows no damage on cylinder walls
No cylinders leak out exhaust, intake, or dip stick oil cap.

Is it reasonable to use felpro head gasket. Experience here please!

Happy full moon
