    Blown head gasket?

    cool got that broke loose just as it got dark, back at it tomorrow after work i suppose. so another question, are the head bolts on these engines reusable? Ive heard mixed opinions on this across all makes and models of engines. some say always new, some say it doesn't mater as long as they look good.

    Blown head gasket?

    yea i have the head pulled off of the engine right now. didnt really plan on letting the tentioner come loose and have to tear this far into it

    Blown head gasket?

    with most of the engine being pulled apart, whats a good way to brake the crank bolt loose? i dont really want to spin the engine backwards

    Blown head gasket?

    well i had attempted to but didnt do it well enough because my tensioner popped out. what is the warp allowance on theses motors?

    Blown head gasket?

    Hey guys,so i tore into my engine today under the assumption of a blow head gasket. (smoke rolled out of the radiator filler prior to tear down) got the head off and the head gasket doesnt seem to be blown, nor are there any cracks in the head. but cylinder 3 was plumb full of coolant. is there something im overlooking or would this be normal for a head gasket failure?

    KA head VS L20b head swap

    yea im leaning towards the L swap if any, so im wondering, ballparkish, how much of a benefit will that L head give me in terms of power (HP/torque)?

    Motorcycle carbs?

    KA head VS L20b head swap

    So stay away from the KA's is what your saying. A L20 head would bolt right up no issues? Multiple carbs on on the L20 set up? What are you thinking, side drafts or..?

    KA head VS L20b head swap

    Hey guys, this is a bit of a follow up from my last post. I'm leaning towards maybe modifying the engine in my 4x4. Ive came across a few posts about head swaps, it has a blown head gasket so i figured if i gotta rip the head off, ill look at my options. So im wondering, for a 4x4, which head swap onto a Z24 is better? also what kind of work am i looking at to make either of those fit up?

    So how did the 4x4 speedo's work if they don't hook to the tranny?

    The 4x4 is an 85, same with my 2 wheel. ill see what i can do about getting some pictures up. Im defiantly keeping the two wheel, Ive had it for years and is my daily. id love to save the 4x4 but im not sure about it yet So what your saying is there's interchangeable parts but nothing necessarily better? Ive already snagged the oil/battery gauge from the 4x4, trying to figure where the oil pressure wire for the sensor is.

    So i just picked up a 4x4 720 today, cost me a 12 rack of cold ones. my thoughts on it was to salvage all the best parts off the 4x4 and build up my 2 wheel dive. so i was wondering, is there anything that's better on the 4x4 than the 2 wheel? Ive heard things about the rear springs off the 4x4 but don't know what makes them special to put on the 2 wheel. in case anyone's wondering the 4x4 has a blown head gasket, cracked heater core and is an old farm truck so shes fairly beat/rusted up and not terribly, but somewhat cobbled on a few things ( gotta love farmer ingenuity ). so i thought id see what the opinions out there were, nothing is set in stone yet. and im trying to find the best options.
