How do you know it is not the head gasket?
Cracked block or head.

Okey doke, you didn't say in your previous post that you did.It could be a cracked head or block or possibly warped head. The cracks are not always easily seen, so it could have been missed. Also, it is fairly easy to put some head gaskets on wrong. (two cents)
