Re: Head removal.
This is all sounding good for me. I now understand the head bolt tightening method, and have also been told to use Hylomar spray on the head gasket. I've set up some secondhand cams that I bought from a wrecker, and have a new waterpump and thermostat installed, am am now ready to put the head on.
The next hurdle will be about making a decision on what oil to use. Given that Mobil 1 hasn't been suitable, I'm thinking of going to Castrol Edge Sport, 10W-60 Full synthetic. Does anyone have an opinion on whether this is as good as Selenia Sport? I don't want to lose any more cam lobes. I dread to think what the bottom end of the motor is like.
