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.

If i have a leak in my head and nothing blown,would i just need a head gasket set replaced or a new head?


May be a new head gasket but there has to be a reason for the leak
incorrect head bolt tensions, bolt holes full of oil or gunk preventing the bolts from tightening the head down, warped head ( head needs milling flat)
or corrosion holes in which case you will need a new head

How do you remove the headrest on a 1996 ford crown victoria?


Head Restraints Each front seat is equipped with dual-post design front seat back head restraint (611A08). The front seat back head restraint is installed as follows:
  • It travels on dual posts which have notches to engage a spring-loaded catch in the guide.
  • The front seat back spring assembly retains the front seat head rest guide rod sleeve (610A16).
  • The front seat back head restraint is adjustable from its normal position to a raised position of approximately 25 mm (1 inch).
  • Pull up on the front seat back head restraint to raise it. Pushing down will return it to its normal position.

Cracked Head???


not necessarily be a cracked head but this is an indication that the head gasket is blown out
the only way to tell if its a cracked is by a machine shop milling the top layer off the head this will show in a milling that you do or you dont have a cracked head

if its cracked head you have several options dealer head brand new
remanufactured head from any auto parts store
junk yard head 50/50 chance that these heads are cracked too

mostly i think right now its just a bad head gasket have them replace both head gaskets when they do the heads better for vehicle so you dont have to run into problem again with head gaskets
