Thank you for responding one other question can i leave the header pipe on the head and just undo the exhaust pipe or do i have to take the header pipe off the head with the motor still in the car?

A ?. Why are you replacing the gasket? Detonation take it out? If so, I suggest you do both sides.

head gaskett

I noticed awhile back i was dripping a little any freeze from the HG when the motor was cold didnt see any coming out of the pass. side granted if one failed i should do both now the motor was rebuilt before i got it it had 10000 miles on the rebuilt i was kinda hoping that a head bolt was an ARP and just needs re-torqued
