Head bolts

Postby Brodalick » Fri Apr 20, 2018 3:48 pm

Getting ready to put the head back on this weekend. Got new head bolts that should be here today, hopefully. With the bolts extending thru the head and subjected to the water, what do I do to seal them off?

PTFE gasket paste sealer available from any good auto parts supply store. Be sure to stir it well before using.

Hi,
Below is a post from about a week ago where I wrote info about putting the head on a Cub, it is most of the way down the page. :)

Will make a trip to NAPA first thing MONDAY morning, since parts did not show up today.
