Head Gasket Questions
Posted 08 February 2005 - 05:37 PM
Need to replace the head gaskets. What Gaskets are needed for this? Need a new intake gasket set too or JUST the head gaskets? How hard is this to do? If I choose not to change the gaskets I might just part it out.

wise to replace the cam carrier reinforced o-ring as well. 2.45 from the dealer (or thepartsbin.com) and you only need 2, one for each side.
just did an EA82 last summer, very easy if you've never done it. wasn't bad at all. i'm used to the 6 cylidner ER27, the 4 cylinders are much faster and more room to work with. could easily do this in less than a day without air tools.

Use ONLY subaru headgaskets and intake manifold gaskets. As was mentioned, replace the cam carrier O-rings. Use Permatex Anaerobic Sealant to seal between the cam carriers and heads. Since you've got the cam carriers off, you should do the cam seals since they are prone to leakage. Also, remember to get rocker cover gaskets.

The o-ring is about 3/4 of an inch and is steel reinforced. You may need to be persistant when talking to a dealer parts hand to make sure you get the right one, and not a cam holder o-ring.....

you can also order it from www.thepartsbin.com i've ordered a number of them from these guys before and it's the correct part. they are the only aftermarket source i've seen for these orings. being on the EA82 though, subaru usually has them in stock.
