I need to know the best way to replace a blown head gasket on my car. I have all the replacement parts and I have an online manual on how to do it but I don`t understand it that well. I need more detailed information on how to start this project.
Do you
have the same problem?

YOU ARE SORTA GOING ABOUT THE DIY IN THE RIGHT WAY

SOME HANDS ON OF DOING WORK LIKE THIS IN THE PAST, IS EVER SO HELPFUL

THIS IS A VERY INVOLVED TASK FOR A 1ST TIMER. THINGS LIKE UNDERSTANDING TORQUE AND TORQUE SEQUENCE AND HAVING THE PROPER TOOLS TO DO IT----ALIGNMENTS AND INSTALLING TIMING COMPONENTSTHE HEAD MAY NEED TO GO TO A MACHINE SHOP FOR SHAVING/ TESTING

I GOT MY DIY START HANGING OUT WITH THE OLDER HIGH SCHOOL BOYS---THEN HIGH SCHOOL AUTO SHOP (2 YEARS) AS WELL AS HIGH SCHOOL MACHINE SHOP( 2 YEARS) WHICH GAVE ME MY 1ST APPRECIATION OF "TOLERANCES" (CORRECT FITTING OF ONE PART TO ANOTHER)

I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL BEFORE COMPUTERS TOOK OVER CARS---MY DAILY DRIVERS ARE A 1977 CJ 5 AND A 1946 WILLYS JEEP. THEY ARE "6" AND "7".1-5 WERE CJ 5s ALSO.I AIN'T OWNED NOTHING BUT, SINCE I WAS ALLOWED ON THE ASPHALT IN 1981

I HAVE LEARNED MIGHT NEAR EVERYTHING ABOUT A CJ OVER THE YEARS, COUPLED WITH "HAVING TO WORK ON" OTHER VEHICLES I'VE FOR MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS

THE BEST THING GOING FOR ME WAS "MANUALS". IF I DID'NT UNDERSTAND A PROCEDURE, I'D "BOTHER" SOMEONE AT A SHOP TO SHOW ME THE LIGHT!

GOT "YOU TUBE" NOW-A-DAYS. CHANGE MY SEARCH CRITERIA, YOU MIGHT GET OTHER RESULTS

EVEN WATCHING A PROCEDURE ON YOU TUBE, CONCERNING ANOTHER VEHICLE MAY HELP YOU UNDERSTAND A "HOW TO" ---WHEN YOU SEEM TO BE LOST
HERE'S SOME OF MY STUFF

THE BEST ADVICE I CAN GIVE YOU IN THIS SITUATION IS:

1ST GET YOU A JEEP CJ!

2ND. GO FOR IT. JUMP ON INTO YOUR MISSION WITH BOTH FEET!
