Hi guys nearly finished changing my head gaskets . Just wondering of someone can tell me where the dipstick bracket gets secured ?. Looks like it goes on the first bolt on the manifold, but it won't go on unless i have bent the bracket somehow.

Any help much appreciated.

Cheers
Paul

The very front outer head bolt on the drivers side has a threaded section sticking out the end. The bracket bolts on there, ontop of the head-bolt head, with a locknut securing it.
