Head gasket replacement

Postby J.T. [OP] » Oct 13 2010, 5:53am

has anyone changed a head gasket on the 5.3? I don't think it would be hard. I have rebuilt a 22r toyota motor and installed it and that wasnt hard but I never removed all the electrical crap. I would like to find an article in detail..
