Head Gasket Bolts Don't Line Up
Posted by TheGreatWiz (more from TheGreatWiz) on Thu, 5 Nov 2015 11:39:06
Hello, I was just putting a head back onto my 92 900s and I noticed something odd. Everything is bolted down fine with the 10 black bolts. I was putting in the two 12 mm bolts on the underside of the head, that attach the front of the engine cover to the underside of the head. I noticed that the holes are just off enough for these bolts not to start easily. The holes just nearly don't line up with the head holes. I got one bolt in but I think I cross threaded it. The other started but I took off about an 1/8th of an inch of threading in the head.
Is this a bolt I can leave off?
Do I need to loosen the head bolts and shift the head as so these can clear?
Does this mean that the head is not sitting where it should be?
