    I used to work for a Bobcat dealer as a field mechanic, and often times when the kubota engine had head gasket problems it also had a crack in the cylinder head between cylinders 2 & 3, and a new head was needed....can't remember what the cost was. If it was me I'd make sure to have a good machine shop test the head for cracks before putting it back together.
