It's really hard to do, and a lot of work, just take it to a shop if you want it done right.
I wish I could afford to take it to a shop
There is a lot of technical aspect to doing a job like this, you need some experience doing something like this, I mean its not like you just take the head off and put a new gasket on. The head itself needs to be checked for warpness, & cracks, its just a lot of work and knowledge you need to do a job like this. There also are cost in getting a job like this done, even if you do it your self.
Well I have a friend that knows quite a bit about this stuff he said he would come over and help it's not going to get done less I do it myself
Ok then, if you have any other questions while doing this please feel free at any time to just ask, no matter what you run into. When getting started, mark the electrical wiring connectors first so you will know where they plug back into when you go to reassemble. Keep track of all the nuts and bolts to where they go also. This will make things a lot easier for you when putting it back together.
We are going to try Bart's block sealer supposed to seal up block and heads and head gaskets try it first maybe I'll get lucky
If it is a slight leak it will work. I've done it before, and it held up just fine. Just make sure you follow the directions to the "T" or you will cause the radiator & heater core to get plugged up. That would be nice for you if this works.
Cool because I do not want to take that motor apart if I can help it
I have a dollar that says it won't work. My guess is you have a moderate to severe leak. Best of luck with it.
Well we're definitely going to find out because I really don't want to pull that head
Hey Terry, thats just Bob, he's cool. Bet him the dollar...lol
I'll send it if I lose. I do hope that the magic stuff in a can fixes your issue.
Yeah I'm definitely hoping for a little magic just a little
Hey Bob you owe me a dollar it worked
Cool, good to go...
Yeah at first I didn't think it was going to work but when I shut it off and let it set for 30 minutes when I started it back up there are no smoke and no leak
The test will be to see if it holds. Keep us informed.
I can do that
I hope it stays fixed.
So far so good no leaks still a little bit of a rough idle
Pulling the head tomorrow it started leaking into the oil
Damn, I wanted Bob to send you that dollar...lol
Yeah so did I I could use it lol
Well, not such good luck and the result was as I feared. Best of luck with it.
