I have got a bit of a bad feeling about my rebuild. I torqued the head down dry, then yesterday read an old post of Douches where he always uses gasket paste. Question is should I take the head back off while its still easy or take the chance?


na generally you dont use gasket paste, particularly if your doing the job "right".  not sure what post you found i must have been on drugs again. Lips sealed

ive used it on a renault which we didnt give a F about and it worked ,  but its not the done thing,    best thing is clean, oil free, dry, very flat surfaces compressed nice and evenly.Wink.




make sure to check coolant regularly and use a nice heavy antifreeze mix,
and have a feel of your viscous make sure its up to job

cheers mate everything is running fine the only problem is I can't get the heater to blow hot. I've tried parking the front end on top of a pile of gravel but it doesn't seem to bleed is there something i've missed? Keep taking the pills! Cheers Pete.

keep the rad cap off and keep filling it while its idling, it shouldnt take more than 10 minutes at worst to get hot in the cab,   if it still wont go dont run it give me a ring
