Well, I need to have the head gaskets and manifold gaskets done on The Great Pumpkin. I'm trying to price things out because one of the garages I go to sometimes lets me supply the parts because, well, I'm broke and they're nice people. Also, I'm probably going to be taking out a loan from my job for the repair and I want to get an idea of what I'm going to be asking for after I get an estimate from the shop.

I'm looking at Advance Auto and Rock Auto and for the parts. What I have read here is to get the Fel-Pro Severe Duty gaskets but from what I'm seeing, they are only available in singles and not the whole gasket/intake set.

If anyone could help me out with links to Advance or Rock with what I need, it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, anyone here from Long Island who loves a challenge and is willing to do the job?

Thanks.

Order on line from Advance auto parts. Go to retailmenot.com and get a coupon code. You can get the head set and the head bolts for 178.

Hi, just replaced my head gaskets. I used the Felpro head gasket set HST-9071-PT-1 with the improved lower intake manifold gaskets - it cost ~$180 on amazon. I also bought a set of head bolts and intake manifold bots for around $50 buck more. FYI - I also had a valve job done for $350. There were a couple of other things you have to buy that don't come in the kit - 4 alignment dowels for $24, a drive shaft O-ring $4, oil and oil filter $25, coolant $20, exhaust studs that go between the heads and the exhaust manifold, a new heater bypass tube (mine was rotted out) $50, and probably some other odds and ends that I forgot.

Good luck, the job isn't that bad - I did it with little more that a 154 piece craftsman socket set. Sincerely

Jerry
