Replacing head gasket


Recommended Posts

OK I know you didnt ask but clean the block threads, compressed air to blow it out, copper cote the threads of the bolts, copper gasket and copper gasket spray, 20lb,40lb, 60lb done., PS, if any head or block work ( removal ) has been done, rotate the crank prior to fastening down to ensure no strike between piston and head.

I have also read 50 pounds but I dont think a little here and there is going to make much difference.

Important thing is to use new bolts and clean out the passages before you start tightening.
