Probably got the rad or screens plugged and over heated the engine more than a few times. That happened to my 2320 as my wife had a bad habit of not paying attention to the little red light. I would have the heads checked to make sure they are not warped while it is apart as well.

Thanks for responding Saskman49,135124. I was thinking the same thing here at home,deciding what I wanted to do.I also think the heads should be checked to determine the damage,because once I hand over the money,it will me my baby.will jd put a warrenty on the gaskets after they in? why do you thing only one side left loose and not both? whats cost to check heads now,would make me feel a lot better paying for it now instead of being down later and putting both on then,anybody have aidea what a new head for this x475 cost?Thanks again to everybody.Big Jim 55.
