Re: studs and gaskets?

Ive seen people just do studs and still blow the gaskets due to the heads not being flat.

If it were me I would do it right the first time and pull the heads make sure they are flat and install new gaskets. Im sure those other owners prolly thought their heads were flat too.

Re: studs and gaskets?

Do it the right way the first time. There have been plenty of people driving around with cracked/warped heads that didn't know about it and kept having problems.

You're better off pullin them and doing it the right way.
