are you replacing the head all together or have you just blown a gasket or something like that. if you have just blown a gasket like i did on my ef fairmont i can tell you what to do cause i did mine last week, it's not as difficult as everyone thinks

Just make sure you replace head gasket with the AU head gasket, and replace cyl head studs with NEW ones.

make sure that when putting it back together that you put sealant from the timing chain cover to the block. If you dont then you will get leaks out from the front of the block from both sides. That is the oil coming from the timing area.........I had to do my Head gasket twice in the period of a month. The book I had did not mention this step. It is the Haynes repair manual.

You can get more info from:
http://www.eseries.com.au/portal/kb.php ... ticle&k=15

Quote:
Once cleaned out, a bead of blue RTV silicone must be applied. It wasn't applied when we did it and it leaked oil later on. Place a bead of silicone along where the rubber gasket will sit, and a little bit over lapping onto the head gasket so it seals that corner. Place the rubber gasket on top, and apply a small bead of silicone on top of the rubber gasket as well, with the same overlap on the head gasket as before.



I hope this helps a little bit
