Hi everyone have a few questions

First of all busy rebuilding my coupe going to put a head gasket on it am I right in thinking standard head gasket and head bolts

Second... is it worth getting the head ported and polished while it's off ??

And last but not least

Where can I get some front eiffle towers from as the bottoms of mine have rotten also the front radiator support can I buy these or will I have to make them ???

Kind regards

Stephen

Get in touch with Joe at FCSS. He should be able to assist.

Hi Stephen,

Welcome to the forum!

Which model of Coupe do you have? That will help with the head questions.

Joe at FCSS has remanufactured the front eiffel towers, there is a link in the group buy section.

The standard 20VT head is strong and I’ve not heard of anyone using anything other than standard gasket and bolt set.

Thanks they are now bought I have elring head bolts and head gasket while the engine is out of the car might as well do it

I have seen gunk in the oil filler cap and in crank case breather could be because the car was sitting for a year.... Better safe then sorry
