Quick Head gasket question
Posted 06 January 2004 - 02:22 AM
My FSM says, after you install new head gaskets, you need to start the engine, let it warm up fully, then shut it down, let it cool, and re-torque the head bolts.
The packaging from the new (Fel-Pro) head gaskets says they never need to be re-torqued.
Do I really need to do this re-torque procedure? It's really a pain in the a$$. I've done it once already, and had to tear the engine down again.

Plus, a couple of them are partially covered by the cam shaft supports, so you can't use a regular socket.
This is all on an EA82...EJ22's might be different.

When I did the HGs on my EA-82 engine, stated right on the gaskets, "Do not re-torque". So I didn't.
