Guys,

Here's some pic updates on the 4.6L '97 Deville rework (from a blown head gasket).

Manifolds are in place. Getting new mounts next week. Installed new transmission seals (main coverter and axles) and will remount trans next week.

Nice pics! ;)

As I recall from you other posts, you reaaly tore into it . Perhaps more than most would have for a head gasket. :rolleyes:

Did you ever find anthing that would have prevent normal enaing operation? Compared to simply time-serting and reassembly...

Have you considered posting the pics an procedures to the how-to section?

Again, thanks for the pics and notes about this job. :)

Add power to leave problems behind. Most braking is just - poor planning.

Nope. Head gasket failed at the #1 cylinder area. I found some pieces of the gasket in the head channel.

I was glad I pulled the engine out and tore it down. I found that the rear main seal was leaking a little, the valve cover gaskets were definately leaking (lower block was getting an ugly coating of crud build-up) and the axle seal on the driver's side was also leaking (changed both axle seals, the main coverter seal and the o-ring on the converter shaft). ;)

As far as posting a "how to" document, this should be no problem. I have many more pics than what I've posted. It would probably be better to have a separate spot in the forum for this info (like some of the special topic pages already posted)

I'll pull the info together once I get the beast back in the car (and running).

Looking good! Can't wait for you to start it!

I also can't wait for my head gasket to blow, I want to do that! :lol:

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.
