What specific do you need information on? Timing? torque of the bolts? etc. I can get what ever you need. There is a lot of information to send and I don't want to send what you don't need.
just what to take off. its the drivers side head in the book it talks about taking off the gear shift (its an automatic) on the inside of the car then refers me to the brake system section i just want to know if all that has to be done
I will attach instructions for removal then I will send install. If I send it all at one time it wont go through because it is to much information.
NOTE: Do not reuse V-Band clamp.
CAUTION: Ensure cylinder head bolts 11-9 (see picture) are removed before attempting the removal of cylinder head, as damage to cylinder head and/or block may occur.
NOTE: The cylinder head bolts are tightened using a torque plus angle procedure. The bolts must be examined BEFORE reuse. If the threads are necked down the bolts must be replaced
Necking can be checked by holding a straight edge against the threads. If all the threads do not contact the scale, the bolt must be replaced (see picture)
CAUTION: When cleaning cylinder head and cylinder block surfaces, DO NOT use a metal scraper because the surfaces could be cut or ground. Use ONLY a wooden or plastic scraper.
