Ooo yes! The worst scenario is the actual liners slip making the gasket fail. I had a tuned 80BHP L model with ram air and flatslides that used to blow at least one a season.

It's not unheard of on standard engines i know of two that have gone. Check the liners are OK before rebuilding, they can be sorted out. Decent sets of barrels are scarce these days, i sold a good set last year for just short of £100.

Always buy OE head gaskets too, there are spurious ones about but they are shite.
