    Check for flatness on the exhaust outlets across all three. When installing the cylinders the exhaust manifold must be bolted on to clock the cylinders before torquing the base nuts.

    ok just to be clear i only pulled of the top cap and replaced the round metal gaskets do i need to pull the actual cylinder and replace the gasket on the base to the block.

    Possible depending on what you find with the parallel test across the exhaust outlets. It still could be a internal crack.
