Finally finished installing a new head gasket in my 1610 D and it seems to work pretty good! Never did it before. Not too hard of a job. Anybody with a little mechanical aptitude should be able to do it. Get a good tourque wrench!
Put some Redline water wetter in too. Anybody use this stuff? What do you think about it? Thanks for all the help Winston,oh and you too Mark.

Glad you got 'er running again KB!

To tell anyone that it's not too difficult is a big pill to swallow...but, really, it's convincing yourself that they were made to be worked on with the minimum of tools and little else.

So, when someone asks how hard is it to change a head gasket....well, you know what to say :).

Redline can make a 15* or so difference in operating temp....we've tried it and checked radiator temperature. Make sure the coolant mix is no more than 30% anti-freeze unless your winters absolutely require a heavier mix. Use app. 1/2 bottle of Redline, fill with the 30/70 mix.
