Thank you very much! By the way if you know of any service manuals will you let me know? Thanks and have a great day. DickEnsure both surfaces are clean! remove all traces f the old gasket and wipe both surfaces with solvent.
Torque it to 55-58 foot lbs in steps. Run the machine to warm it then re-torque it. You must re-tension the head after it has warmed up as the gasket will crush a little and the bolts will loosen off. Mine were about 1 1/2 turns too loose!!! Never listen to your non-mechanic father when he tells you not to bother re-torquing *rolls eyes*
Look at http://users.tpg.com.au/tazza_/Untitled3.jpg for a scan of the repair manual, this shows the torque sequence and torque tension. Any problems just yell.
Service manuals are available on e-bay, but check the price from your local dealer some dealers are cheaper than on e-bay. I got mine from a fellow named maxxwedge, very nice and helpful.Thank you very much! By the way if you know of any service manuals will you let me know? Thanks and have a great day. Dick
