i bought a felpro head gasket set and they dont say how to install them. they almost look the same on both sides exept there is different line pattern on one side. There is no left or right marks anywhere. help me please. thank you.
Could someone measure the piston protrusion, please? After machining the engine block, I have the following data:
Measured like shown in the picture, the small milled plateau A in the middle of the piston has been measured refering to the cylinder wall. All pistons are lower than the cylinders:
Cyl. 1: -0.2mm
Cyl. 2: -0.08mm
Cyl. 3: -0.2mm
Cyl. 4: -0.1mm
Cyl. 5: -0.13mm
Cyl. 6: -0.17mm
Measuring the piston at positions B, I got the following data:
I read the DIY on this one and they mentioned you need air tools, why? Can't you just use your ratchet?
The only time air tools became really useful was when i needed to remove the exhaust bolts. Air tools punch the rust in between metal allowing the bolt to turn. Plus its good to have an air gun to clean out stuff.

This mourning I'm heating up the carb it's starts rev up n down around 2to 3 rpm it does this till it warms up also throwing out cold air then when I drive it throws hot sometimes it stays hot when I idling too is it the head gasket? Ir what coludí it b the car is not overheating and it's not leaking fluid just changed the radiator n oil*please help lol
You may have a headgasket issue.
Up and down rev, also you may have not noticed but your coolant is moving from the engine back to the radiator to the reservoir.
Thats a clear indication of a blown headgasket.
I was in denial for a year to find out it was the headgasket. Luckily, the heads werent warped but needed to resuface because of the pits. After a headgasket replacement always have your heads resurfaced best practice.
I'm having overheating issues due to a BHG and I need help. TL/DR at the bottom.
Here's my story: I started the car for the first time in a few weeks just the other day and drove a few blocks to get gas when I noticed the temp gauge at H (first time ever). It was also doing the oscillating reving (vroom, vroom, vroom,...). So at the station I bought some coolant, filled it back up, and hoped the temp would go back down. It did not. I went home and began the processes of bleeding air out of the coolant. 30 minutes later it started smoking out the exhaust real bad. So I pulled the thermostat out, cut out the innards, put it back in, and started the processes over. 10 minutes later it started smoking again and the temp needle was still at H!
If I could get the car to work just this summer while I save for a new one, that would be ok. I'm not going to fix the HG or get a new engine. The car is too effed up to warrent it. What should I do?
TL/DR: anything I can do to get car to limp any further?
I just did a head gasket change to my 1994 Legend. Now my check engine light is on. Code 12 is what it says. So I took my little finger and pushed up on the diaphragm on my EGR It made no difference. shouldn't it have died out?
