Subaru Head gasket installation instructions
Get a torque wrench on Amazon
Subaru Head gasket installation instructions for putting your new head
gaskets on. Another thing people will usually replace at the same time is
the head bolts. I recommend doing this if there has been severe warping of
the heads due to severe overheating. Often times the original lead based
gasket fails due to age/heat cycles/expansion and the bolts are fine. In
this case it's fine to clean the old ones with a wire brush and dip the
tips in motor oil and re use them.
