    Replacing a '93 750 Fuji Head Gasket Soon...

    Any advice?

    I will check best I can the flatness and surface finish of the head. The cylinder is another matter. What should I do to prepare the cylinder surface, I assume there is corrosion and residuals from the shot gasket. Clean it? Block it with wet (oil) sandpaper or something? Spray or some tyoe of sealant? Do you pull the studs to get at it? Is pulling the studs out of a thin aluminum head a potential bad idea?

    Thanks.

    Clean it, install the gasket dry (or some use 3M copper spray) and torque it down in a star pattern.

    Make sure the gasket is situated properly. Make it so the "UP" is visable, and the "sharks fin" is located under the cooling rail.

    I've seen the copper spray mentioned previously. I will do that. Thanks.

    Hopefully the puppy runs tomorrow.

    What is the material of that gasket? It looks like some sort of stainless underneath but doesn't seem right. ???. Exotic coating?

    SS gasket with a rubberized coating of some sort. That's why no dressing is required.
