I have gone through a lot of the head gasket replacement threads but did not see my answer. My son's cruiser just started blowing sweet smelling steam, we think it literally just started so not likely driven much at all with this condition. Oil looks real good and no bubbles in the radiator which is still full. But clearly we have a leak into a cylinder. How long will it take to do the job, any estimates. We do not plan on sending the head out, it runs great now and before this started. We will replace the valve stem seals. We will replace the water pump, I think it was starting to make some noise, it did not overheat. It did overheat over a year ago when the AC belt let loose and took out the others withit and that little pain in the @ss hose under the intake blew. Is there any good write up on the process? I have seen where there is a DVD, but we want to start tearing into this today, I cannot believe I could not find a write up on the process.
