Its coming today, anyone up for Headgaskets?

My truck is showing up today in Austin after two weeks of being hauled around from California. Sadly, it needs some headgasket help. Anyone up for helping me? With an air conditioned garage? I have no idea what I am doing, but I know how to buy beer.

Thanks.

I've done a headgasket job in my garage. It's not a tough job so much a wrenching intensive. I'll be happy to drink your beer and point at what needs to happen. I may still have pics of the whole job around here somewhere too.

I think it may be beyond my capabilities, but I would love to drink some beer and just stare at the motor for a while.

With any luck, the Rover will be here by this weekend. Look for a white '94.

If you can turn a wrench you can replace a headgasket. The hardest part is keeping track of where everything goes when you're done.
We can do a club techday at my place if it can wait a month or so for things to cool off. Wrenching in 102 degree heat is not my idea of fun and I'd rather be at the lake.

Seriously? That would be great. I could use all the help I can get. It can wait a month or so. I only need it to get me to work and back, < 12 miles/day. It seems to be doing alright with that.

Any guidance on parts I should be ordering over other parts? Also, any specific tools?

Are you all part of the Texas club, or a local Austin one? Gotta know which club to join.
