How to replace your head and head gasket pt. 1

Here is how I changed the head and gasket on my 1992 Mazda B2600i pickup truck. This was the first time I have ever done a head gasket repair, and I have to say that most everything went according to plan. It was actually a lot easier than I anticipated. Total work time was about 14 hours, plus 2 weeks waiting for parts to arrive, that was the hardest part, haha. I am not especially mechanically trained or inclined, just interested in mechanics and the way they work, and that has helped me tremendously through procedures like this. I have found that since I want to learn about the way these parts connect, disconnect, and cooperate together, I have been able to do things to my cars and trucks that I never thought I could. Taking care of your own vehicles is definitely a rewarding activity, for many reasons. Obviously you save a lot of money, you can rely on yourself to get your truck running in a jam, and are rarely stranded on the side of the road for long. Also, with more people doing their own work on their cars, mechanic services will be devalued, thus making it more affordable for everyone ($100 per labor hour, can you believe that?!?) Also, there is definitely a sense of satisfaction which comes from a job well done, being an interested and capable and competent individual, and helping out your friends with their problems. I like to learn, I like to be handy and useful to others, I like to save money, and I like to get dirty, so whenever I can I wrench on my own trucks and motorcycles. A special thanks to the fine folks at the Mazdatruckin.com forum for all the technical articles. Hopefully you all can use this series of videos to help guide you through a similar procedure, really it is not that hard, and totally worth it. My expenses: head gasket $44 reman head $251 jug oil $12 jug coolant $14 manifold gasket set $14 TOTAL $335 That is about $1000 less than a mechanic would charge. Be brave, and do it yourself!

How to Test Head Gasket
** Please see my other videos on this topic* Thx! This video is intended for those who would like to know how to confirm a damaged head gasket on a vehicle prior to making the decision to invest a lot of money for repair. My apologies for the camera focus- next video I will pay closer attention, but the information needed is viewable. Further research should be done on the risks of overheating to the engine block and such. This video is meant to simply show a 'how to' on the test method I used quite often when professionally working on vehicles, the results of which are based on chemistry and industry-standards of the time (1990's). I hope you find this video useful. RI.

Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy
Compression Testing and What You Can Learn From It - EricTheCarGuy Here is a video on performing a compression test on an engine to assess it's mechanical condition. An engines ability to compress air and fuel is directly proportional to it's performance since an engine is nothing more than an air compressor once you take away all the controls. A compression test is a good general test that will give you an idea of the engine's overall health but it does not give specific information on what the problem is should there be one, for that a "leak down test" would be required, here is a link to that video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgrfT0LFMhc However if you find yourself looking for the source of a performance problem with an engine, this is a great place to start. This test is often overlooked in favor of looking at the fuel or ignition system, I think that's a mistake, if an engine can't perform mechanically no amount of electronics will make that better. Recently, I hit the 500 subscriber mark and I'd like to thank all of my subscribers past, present, and hopefully in the future for that.
