    pulling head off

    Next week I plan on pulling the motor and head off my 04 rxp to up grade the vavles and flywheel bolts. I know I need a new head and pto gaskets and studs is there anything else? Part numbers would also help.

    Thanks in advance

    Patience.....Patience.....Patience.....

    Part numbers for the pieces you mentioned are as follows:
    Head Cover Gasket: 420950820
    Head Gasket: 420950770
    PTO Gasket: 42095 I cannot remember the rest of it off the top of my head. I will update later.
    Head Studs: Go with ARP head studs since you are going with Ferrea valves, springs, and retainers. Better investment personally. Or order the stock ones.

    Might as well pop a 08+ oil jet in the pto cover while you have it off!

    Might want to investment in stronger fly wheel bolts as well. You're also going to need a good torque wrench and a paint pen to mark the head bolts when tightening (not only torquing the head bolts, but also have to measure degrees after torque is reached.) Replacing the timing chain is a real beetch too. Be sure to mark the alignment of the chain and the gear tooth before you remove. Finally, you'll need the tool that locks the crankshaft when you're putting the timing chain back on. I have pics of the process when I did mine ('04 RXP) if you need them.

    Regards,

    +1 on the 08+ oil jet mod[i wish i did mine when i did full rebuild]there is a full thread on this forum..easiest way to work out what you will need parts wise is to just open up greenhulkoem parts lists and check out the exploded parts pictures.+babbits onlineparts are cheaper.dont waste money on crank/cam looking tools you can just improvise with the tools u prob already have in the shed[drill bit for cam]a way to time cam is to - no. 3cyl TDC, rotate engine to lock camshaft in position - use torch and make sure the hole in the crankshaft counterweight is perfectly in the middle of the hole in the engine block..loosen 3 capscrews on camgear and adjust if neccessary,retighten capscrews, turn engine one way and then back, lock cam and visually recheck alignment of hole in crankshaft. I used peramatex aviation gasket cement on my head gsk and loctite515 on all other gsk's.
