Well, I decided to spend a little cash and put in the Comp Cams Magnum roller rockers and some chromoly pushrods. I guess I figured "what the hell" since I was in as deep as I was anyway. They made hitting "zero lash" as easy as it could've been, I suppose. I also installed the ARP head studs with 12 point nuts. The head job wasn't much fun in a lifted FJ60. Here's where I stand.
Here's what is holding me up:
The old Felpro lower intake gasket is made of metal with substantial rubber to seal the passages. The new one is plastic with MUCH less rubber to effectively seal things up. Should I try and get the metal gasket as a standalone item? Also, should I put any sealant around the water passages? A couple of google searches say some different things, so I was hoping someone here might have some insight. Also, does anyone happen to have a manual that they can scan/take a picture of the torque sequence and values for the intake manifold and upper plenum? I can't find my printout that my GM guy in Monterey gave me before my last move.
Thanks for any help you all can provide. I'm really excited to get my truck back on the road!
