UPDATE:  MAY 19, 2019

Im waiting to get my order from 22RE Performance head gasket and ARP Stud Kit.

I have received all the other gaskets.  :biggthumpup:

I have a Fel-Pro head gasket and Ill compare that with the $49.00 OE from 22RE Performance.  :yesnod:

Has anyone installed an ARP Stud Kit in a 22 block?  How did you do it?  What did you torque the nuts down to?

I will have to order 3 new fuel injector connectors they are broken after 33 years.  I replaced the No 1 connector after some diagnosing to figure out why #1 was not firing when I first fired the engine.  :blah:

I will have to cut, wire prep, solder, and heat shrink connector wires probably take me a couple hours.  :gap:

If I dont run into an Oh $hit!! while Im putting on the new head and putting everything back together, I hope to have it running by next week end.  :crossed:

Gnarls. :spin:
