  • Engine: 57 Golden Hawk head gasket questions

    I'm replacing head gaskets with thin type and from searching archives here is what I have learned:

    Spray with Coppercoat
    Torque is 65 #
    Retorque..........not sure. Some posts said yes, some no.
    Valve clearance .027 cold.

    Could someone please verify if I have the correct info, address the retorque issue and.....is it possible to post, fax or email a bolt tightening diagram?

    Thanks!

    You'll be having many more questions and concerns as you go along, so you definitely need a Shop Manual. They're still available from our vendors.

      I didn't know manuals are available. I'll start looking in the vendor list. Thanks.

        OK, I'm an idiot. Where is the vendor list?
