Tip

For All You Motor Heads


Want an easy way to take a cylinder head on and off a motor?
Well here you have at least one thought, hope it helps you all.
Remove all other sub assemblies as usual to gain access to the cylinder head and its bolts, Remove the cylinder head bolts.
After you have all the gaskets cleaned and ready for installation, take one of the head bolts to your local parts house or hardware store and match it up with about eight studs of the same diameter thread and length.
thread four of these studs 2 staggered to the front head bolt threaded holes in the engine block and two staggered in the two rear head bolt threaed head bolt holes.
You are now about experiene a whole lot of trouble free mounting of the head gaskets and seals, as well as the installation of the head/heads (on a V/6 or V/8).
Just slide the head down the shaft of the head bolt studs and one at a time install the head boltys using the inside to the ends torque theory and walla... you have it on without the gaskets sliding and without the cylinder head sliding loosing a proper seal.
Don't forget to be certain the stud bolts you threaded are hand tight and high enough to be protruding up through the heads so you can easily unscrew them when you need to replace them with the factory head bolts.

Replace a crank shaft pulley


Most pulleys can be pulled with a simple puller honestly a haynes manually will usually point you in the right direction if you cant loosen the bolt I put a decent 1/2 in ratchet on the bolt usually my craftsman (dont mind breaking them) and giving the handle a good whack I believe most all are normal right hand threads hope this helps sound kinda caveman but if you dont have an impact or cant get one in there without pulling the Radiator and condensor it works (BE CAREFUL NOT TO HIT THE RADIATOR ,CONDENSOR OR YOUR HAND LOL also make sure not to use the center screw on the puller inside the threads of the bolt that holds on the pulley most pullers will have a little button looking thing that will prevent this from happening as I said before a $20 manual from haynes usually will walk you through this Good luck 37 Lansing Rd North, Colonie, NY 12304

G'day. removing head without service manual, would like to know correct sequance so i minimise warping risk. thanx.


dont matter what engine it is you start in the middle top and bottom and then do left then right left then right and so on ,if this is a aluminum head head then about 65/780 lbs is enough torque ,yes i know the book says new head bolts and all that but thats only for the daler to make more money ,make sure the head bolt thread holes are cleaned out with a bit of rag on the end of a screwdriver as any oil and water in them could hydraulic as you tighten the bolts and split the block .best of british with your endevours

I am replacing a track bar and am having trouble removing it how should it properly be removed without ruining the car


Unload the suspension and it should not give you too many problems.(in some cases, you need to partially load it again to get bolts free) Use lots of wd40 on bolts and if difficult to drive out, put the nut back on even with the bolt end before using a hammer on it...that will protect bolt threads from damage.

Exhaust Manifold giving me trouble


If you have a Drill Machine and access to the snapped bolt, then drill a hole smaller the bolt size in the cetre of the bolt, then insert the Bolt Extractor tool in the centre of bolt, lightly hit it with hammer so it grab the bolt.Now with proper size of spanner tight Extractor Tool in side the snapped bolt by moving the spanner anti clockwise, In this way you can remove the snapped bolt. Note: The ribs or threds of Extractor Tool are opposit to the threads of the normal bolt. So you tight the Extractor Tool, you are unscrewing the snapped bolt.
