    what should i do, my car has a blown head gasket, and it is blow because i have a fully built head and not a build up lower end. I bought a new cylinder head for it, and a fel pro head gasket kit. My parents offered me 400 to take is somehwere and get it fixed, but i am weirey because i might be able to do it myslef, with the help of a hanes manual. what should i do? also if i accept the 400 that is basically my christmas!! thanks

    do it yereself- but get rid of the hanes and get the real deal helms shop manual- doing a head gasket shouldn't be too bad, provided you have some knowledge of motors- keep the 400 bills

    you really should have your head planed if you do a headgasket, and just follow the procedure for torquing the head bolts in the right sequence. Should be fine!

    and untorque them in the proper reverse sequence if you're reusing the old head.
