How do i remove the heads on 1987 buick le sabre


Remove the intake manifold first, then the valve covers, make sure then the #1 piston is up to top dead center on compression stroke and the marks are lined up on the timing tab, loosen all the rocker adjustment nuts and remove all pushrods keeping the in order for re-installation, then remove all head bolts starting from the outside ends and in a circle. Best to have a torque sequence from a manual for that final thing. Then use a bar of some kind to pry under the head at manifold surface and pop them off. Be sure to keep those push rods in order for they are worn to configuration for each rocker and lifter.

What are the cylinder head torque specs for a 1999 cadillac deville 4.6l


I can help you with this but I have to ask one question. Have you already taken this apart and putting it back together? Did you rethread all the head bolt holes because they strip out when you tighten them and you will ruin the head gaskets. Let me know, I have don't this job quite a few times. I'll have to look up the actual torque specs. Also you are wanting the spec for the cylinder head bolts and not the cylinder head cover bolts right?

Tightening head

Start in the center, and work to the edges, torquing the bolts in two stages.

Rockers are torqued to 22'lbs.
