Torque the crap out of them and save alittle more for a good second hand motor or rebuilt block.


I don't think torqing the crap out of head bolts is the answer they have a specific torque setting to adhere to plus the damage that can be done by over torqing the head bolts.

Re torqueing head bolts is a thing of the past new head bolts will not take the punishment. Head is most likely cracked or corroded

Just replace the engine... it will be easier.

I killed the old 4L in my fairy... so I dropped it over at a mates place.

Drove it home the next day, with an XR6 motor in it.
