    Wanted: Help replacing head gasket (paid)

    It's time for a head gasket job on 2072. I'm not comfortable doing it myself, without someone who knows what they're doing.

    I'm willing to pay for someone's time or eyes on this, as I _really_ don't want to screw it up.

    I can take the car to a location of your choice - my driveway is probably not ideal, but it could work as long as the HOA doesn't get too nosy. I do have most tools you'd need. As a condo owner, i probably shouldn't have an air compressor, but ce la vie!

    PM me or post here if you're willing and able to help, and/or can recommend someone.

    I have a head gasket kit and already remanufactured cylinder heads on hand from DPI.

    Thanks!

    You probably want to put your location.

    You can do it!

    I've done a few engines now from motorcycles to cars including my Jeep's PowerTech 4.7 v8 with 3 timing chains. If you are well researched and take your time, get the right tools and keep in touch with people you can totally tackle it yourself.

    While I appreciate the vote of confidence, I've never done a head gasket job on any vehicle. While I probably _could_ get it done, chances are it would either take me several weeks to months, or that I would mess something up and end up having to redo it due to my inexperience.

    That's why I'm looking for help, and willing to pay someone for it.

    I'm still looking for someone to help me with this job. It can be at my place, or I can take the car to you.

    PM me if you're interested or available.
