Question Head Gasket Replacement

To the moderators in this group, I'd like to see a step-by-step procedure with pix, if available, on how to replace head gaskets. This is a common recurring problem with all drag racing buffs and it's not cheap to get it done every year or so by your local speed shop. We could all benefit from this info in both the wallet and knowledge of engine mechanics. In addition to showing us the method of replacement, you could also tell us what other mods or tune-ups could be performed at this time while the front end is torn down like this. What I'm looking for is recounts of what tools did you use, did you have to remove the PS pump, what hoses need to be clamped off when removed, did you have to remove the rockers, did you label parts/rods, did you use a head deck scraper, did you plane the head deck or check for warping, is there anything better than Felpro, are copper gaskets better than paper, cork, or rubber, what other repairs/tune-ups can be performed while everything's apart, what type of sealers or anti-seize compounds, if many, need to be used, what other gaskets should also be replaced, are studs the best as opposed to TTY bolts, do I need to retorque the studs after a bit, and, well, you get the picture. Is this possible?

I think that is a great idea, but something tells me you already know how to do this.

I will be assy. my new engine soon. That would make a good article. A step by step.

There are a few of these kind of things in the works, so stay tuned
