DIY Head and head gasket installation

Installing the head and gasket onto the rebuilt engine block.  New felpro head gasket installed.  Saturn S-Series.  I chose to go with a professionally rebuilt head due to burned and chipped valves.  The reason for tearing the engine down was compression issues.  New head bolts should always be used.

I took care to make sure both the block and the head were at TDC Top Dead Center prior to installtion to avoid any mechanical damage.

Most of my DIY parts and supplies for my Saturn project came from Autozone and Advance Auto Parts.

I used a Felpro headgasket and put it on clean without any additives as per manufacturers instructions.

My PCI timing kit came form ebay and included camshaft sprocket gears, crank gear, chain, guides, and tensioners.  I had to re-use the crankshaft gear bolts.

The rebuild head came from a reputable ebay seller and I am very pleased with the quality.
