    This week on Money Pit, the tables have turned. We’re at Eddie’s house helping him put his engine back together after blowing the head gasket in his MIATA. Along the way we’ll look at what a head gasket is and how to replace one.
    We have a new channel!

Don't need fuses either. Something more expensive will fail. Weld head to block. Light fuse and get away.

With that head line for a video you are making all of those first time mechanics really dumb make a head line worth reading, not something perfect but something that is gonna make a citizen watching this video say"hey, this youtuber made a video about changing a certain part that i needed to change but i didn't know how and his head line... Just wow he didn't discrace no one, certainly not me this video sure does get my like and maybe i will subscribe to him because maybe he will change more parts on more cars that i didn't know" that kind of head lines are for your videos. Im not a hater i really like the way you fix your car but please just make better head lines

We have a Lanz Bulldog, and last week we figured out that my great-grandfather just threw away the head gasket away, because he accidentally burnt the head too hot( you need to set the Head on fire to preheat the engine) and let the gasket melt. Now we overhaul the Motor after about 60 years. This thing ran without a head gasket for the last 60 years, but the compression was not the best, that’s why we repair it. But the torque from that 10l one cylinder is still amazing.

Ha good luck for the guys who are not Machinists and have no idea about tolerances, everytime you shave that bish you're moving closer to a scraped block, bigger gaskets lift easier, GL one time IF it didn't majorly overheat is ok, maybe 2, but if it got real hot and yeah it happens quick AF, scrap it or you'll be mad when it happens again, and usually you I just replace the whole cooling system, all wires, sensors, rad, fan, fuses, relays, and of course Gaskets.

2:34 the main reason why most people are afraid to buy a car with a bad head gasket is because it probably overheated too so the head and block could be warped.

just bought a 94 toyota 4runner for 450 bucks cause it had a bad head gasket. the full gasket set cost 58 bucks online and around 10 hours worth of not realy working that hard to change it and the timing belt. tidied up a few other things under the hood as well. so yes, it is worth buying a car with a bad head gasket if it is cheap and has a clean title.

i'm no mechanic but every blown head gasket Iv'e experienced has always required milling to dial in the tolerance or fitment of the head to the block. Some engines are infamous for blowing head gaskets, this I dod know to be true.

Is there a way you're supposed to do that before hand? Or you just gotta live with the heads internals potential premature wear from "going in dry," so to speak. I'd imagine going in dry is hell on the internals. No personal experience in that category though. 😏

With the bp 1.8 non interference your method is fine but with interference engines it's poor practice to set the pistons to tdc THEN set cam timing. Set your crank timing to 60ish degrees btdc, then set cams, then bring your crank timing up to tdc. This insures no contacting issues when setting timing regardless of engine type.

You need to use the shortest possible extension you can when torquing. With a long extension like that, your actual torque will be lower than set. If you must use a extension that long, bump it up by a few lbs to be closer to actual required tq

This is dangerous viewing for those trying a head gasket first time. Timing has to be considered BEFORE the head is fitted and torqued down. Once the head is on complete with camshafts, inevitably some of the valves will be open, so if you start turning the crankshaft, pistons may well meet valves. Sounds like it was timed up wrong on reassembly anyway, or valves have been bent. Understand hot climate, but we only saw water go in, without any anti-corrosion additives which are essential with an alloy head. If it was run on just water before head gasket failure, that may have caused a heavily silted radiator, leading to overheating and head gasket failure.

Last year I bought a 1996 Mercedes E420 for just over a 1,000€ with good spec, almost no rust and rather clean past. The only thing I had to do was a head gasket job. 250€ later and it's running strong and smooth after almost 10,000km by now. Yes, it is worth it and anyone can do it with enough time :-)
