Re: Looking for a little help
When you get the head gasket you'll get them in a set. I don't think they come by themselves. Basically the set includes the head gasket, rocker cover gasket, inlet and exhaust manifold gaskets, timing chain cover top gasket, and a few other bits and pieces. Doesn't really matter what brand it is, as long as the rocker cover gasket isn't cork. Then you know it's a crap set.
You'll need fresh oil, cable ties, coolant, head bolts, a good quality socket set and ratchet. And get a good quality 14mm impact socket, trust me you don't wanna do the job with out it. A rubber mallet, an extra pair of hands or a hoist for taking off and putting the head back on, RTV silicone for the timing chain cover top gasket, and some anti sieze lube stuff for the head bolts when you put them back in.
Other than that, there isn't too much to it! If you have any other problems, you can give me a ring, I'll PM you my #.
