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!

A quick note about head warpage....depending on the cause of your head gasket failure, you may need to have the head and/or block resurfaced at a machine shop. Having this done is not always necessary but may be required if one or both of your head gasket mating surfaces is out of the manufactured specified range for head and block warpage. Accurately measuring this using a precision straight edge and the feeler gauges as shown in this video is a vital step and should not be overlooked.

Spark Plug Well Oil Leak Fix, Honda Accord - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ I know I've promised this one for some time so here it is. If you have this problem I recommend replacing the seals in the valve cover first and then coming back to recheck for oil in the spark plug wells in about a month or so, if you find oil then I recommend performing this procedure.
