I bought a black dragon gasket kit. (http://www.blackdrag...ures/z/ZRS1.htm) I figured I'd start a thread where anybody like myself who has any questions with the installation and can't seem to find any specific answers online. I'll take pictures of each piece and either ask for help or talk about how I installed them. Quarter window frame to body gaskets: You can see that it's a U shaped gasket, with a longer stem on one side, shorter on the other. I'm assuming I glue it to the window trim, longer stem as the outer gasket and the shorter stem on the inside. Like this: Is this correct? Am I supposed to glue it to the car? Tips are appreciated and hopefully this not only helps me but becomes a valuable thread for people in the future!
some more woes, and Im super angry at the shop my car was at more than ever now. Previously some how "bad gas" got into the car while outside of my care, and gummed up some valves that caused the rockers to fall off. Noticed #5 was real slow going up and down when we got the rocker reattached, but eventually started working right after I played with it a bit. Got that fixed a while ago and have been working on getting my DCOE's running right but something has been very odd. To the advice of a friend of mine, I compression checked the engine and got the following values: #1=200 psi #2=160 psi #3=210 psi #4=190 psi #5=0 psi #6=205psi With some shop air, further testing has lead me to believe bent intake valves on #2 and #5. Have never pulled the head before on a Z. I have heard that the main thing to worry about is the timing chain tensioner. Do I just stuff a bunch of rags down there to keep tension so I can pull the head? I plan on finding TDC before the head is pulled and then mark everything on the cam sprocket and timing chain so I can line everything back up properly after it comes back from a shop. What's the best advice you can give me on this project, am I on the right track?
