URGENT HEADGASKET HELP NEEDED
« on: June 29, 2012, 08:08:00 PM »
Hey everyone,

This isn't Datsun related hence why it's in off topic but I need the head gasket in my Toyota Crown changed as it blew bad time. I'm looking for someone who could change the head gasket and timing belt on a 7MGE engine (known for their crap head gaskets due to wrong head torque). If I supplied the gaskets, new head bolts and the belt would anyone be able to change it? (for a fee of course) It's still mobile due to the fact it lost compression equally on two cylinders on opposite sides of the firing order, would anyone be able to help me? My dad is out of town for 3 weeks and I'm working two jobs, any direction would be really appreciated! I've been quoted $800 labour at a mechanics which would negate one of my jobs.

Cheers
Zac
