Javi, it looks from the pics that there are perforations in the proper oval shapes on that gasket. Are you sure you're not supposed to punch them out?


If you notice I circled some, the shape of the gasket and the head don't match. I thought the same thing, if I should punch hem to he head's shape or is it ok to leave them like that.

Jay, I got the tool, I am studying it to see how it works. Today is a beautiful Saturday in the good ol'south so I will be working on the truck soon.

I am thinking on taking a bit of time longer to paint and polish a couple of things under the hood. This is crazy but thinking on painting the intake manifold, red <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> crazy??? Ha ha ha
I am also going to redo the plastic piping that covers the fuel injectors wires it is brittle and disintegrating.

Oh, one question: I found the timing belt way too easy to slide out, is it supposed to have a bit more of tension on it? Can o adjust it? Should I?

Will have my pc in the garage together with some good Latin tunes and the little fridge with good beer so I will be posting the good as I go.
