Got all of my parts in. Installed the new head studs last night. I couldn't find a torque spec so just snugged them up tight. Digging in on the rest today sometime.

One other pointer, the plastic coolant T- lines are back by the firewall. They get brittle and break over time. When you jack the motor up they are under tension and may snap. Good time to replace both plastic Ts.

Yep, good thought. Those were replaced a few thousand ago.

About 8 hours total. 5 for removal and 3 for installation working leisurely over two days. Just guessing.
