    Surface preparation of 1FZFE deck surface prior to Head Gasket replacement. How smooth (RA Finish) does it need to be??

    Following your thread with some interest.... When I did the HG the first time on our '97 @ 119k, I used a straightedge and feeler gauge to check block flatness. All measure to spec after I had done the scraping and some cleanup with the scothbrite pads our machine shop used for metal cleanup...

    For Sale 80 series non-USA sunvisors brand new

    Also interested in a set of grey. Are they available still? Has anyone found a way to have them dyed? If i recall, the material is not a std vinyl but a short velour-like material with the fuzz. I would expect a paint from a spary can to not work well at all. Thanks again.

    Head gaskets and the 1FZ

I have had to let it sit for past yr and starting now to determine best path for a 3rd HG and found this post. I too...

    No, not yet. Still on the market. First buyer was local and backed out when the tent trailer method did not quite suite the wife :(. The second is in-process... waiting a decision. Thks for asking.

Its been on trips from CA to CO thru the mtn passes along the way as well as many trips to Lake Tahoe and the Central Sierra's...

    Replacement Catalytics Convertors - CA Legal

    What concerns me about the Magnflow - and have not verified it yet - is the fine print that says mod's required when they advertise it as bolt-in and is it stl stl or a thin-gauge stl stl with a short life time?? At <$400, its certainly attractive, but still wonder. Seen the posts on the cheap...

    Replacement Catalytics Convertors - CA Legal

    Have to renwew every 2 years so swapping starts to get expensive and time consuming. Gaskets are $50 for the whole thing plus any stripped or damaged nuts and studs. Time two for the friend plus the hour it takes. The used cat does NOT require a reweld. The front cat is factory welded to...
