114 cylinder head prob

so........ last year had antifreeze smoking from exhaust, changed head gasket. then.... still had antifreeze coming out of exhaust, rebuilt head. now.... still have antifreeze smoking. spoke to a guy who knows about motors and he told me that my head was most likely not rebuilt right and that antifreeze will not escape from the block. is this true or do i possibly have a bad block. any help will be apreciated
thanks

The cyl head needs a pressure test. It can also be checked for cracks.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Hi madman,
recently I bought a 1969 230 Automatic, 6 cyl carburettor, with "a blown head gasket". The car had good provenance, its original delivery papers, etc.
It turned out to be an expensive exercise!. The head was actually abraded away between cylinders by combustion gases. The concensus from my mechanic and the cylinder head reconditioners was that it was not repairable, as the aluminium alloy had softened due to a previous crack and clumsy rewelding. I found other cylinder heads from wreckers, similar problems and rejection! Eventually I got one good enough to be reconditioned and it was reunited with the block. It cost me about AUD4000, twice what the car is worth!!!
The moral is:- your cylinder head may also be soft in places, and may have blown straight through again. Sorry :-(
I hope you can get the car running again.
kind regards
David

so should i look into getting another head, or should i pull out the block also and get it rebuilt. what i want to do is be sure what the mechanic told me about blocks not ruining is true so i can concentrate on the head
thanks
