Default Head gasket - 66 200ci straight 6

Is there a walkthrough article anywhere so I have a step by step to be sure I'm doing this right?

Doing a gasket set on a 66 200ci straight 6.

No need for new head bolts. That is maainly for the aluminum head motors with "stretch bolts",

Great thanks guys. Good to know I don't have to toss out disposable bolts. Still can't seem to find a tech article on the head gasket job.

You don't have a repair manual? It's a fairly straight forward job. Mostly want to be sure you get the correct torque values...which is in the manual.

So, you determined that the smoke is from the head gasket?

I think its odd that I have a Haynes book for 65-73 I believe is the years it covers for Mustangs, but it is V8 only. I don't really get that. I have never seen a book that said it was for I6.

Check the index. All the ones I have, chapter 2 is subdivided into the different engines.

No I don't have a manual. I'll try to find one. And no I have not determined what it is but I figure it's not a long job so I'll do it and change the oil and such and hope it helps. I'm gonna hit as many gaskets in the set I can get in a few hours.

I have this one. I don't see anything about I6 170 or 200 in it.

According to my 1965 shop manual, the max torque for head bolts on the 200 CI is 75 lb. I'm sure it's no different with the 66. I just went through a rebuild of my 200 that included a trip to the machine shop where they sleeved the cylinders and planed the block and head. After everyhing was put back together (my brother's shop did the rebuild) I noticed oil seepage around the head gasket in the area closest to the firewall. One of the old salts on the fordsix.com forum suggested that after the machining, some of the bolts might be bottoming out, thus providing a false torque reading. He suggested that I add hardened washers under all the head bolts and re-torque. After doing that, the leak stopped. You might want to consider having the proper washers handy, just in case, or use them anyway as a preventative measure.

Thanks for that. Any idea what size I should be getting for washers? And since I don't have time to wait, can someone scan and send me pages from a service manual that deal with replacing the head gasket?

I got the head gasket set which includes intake and exhaust manifold, valve cover, water outlet, egr and valve stem seal. Should I do all of that right away or just the head gasket?

I would do them all since you will have the engine taken apart.

have you rebuilt engines before? replacing all of that shouldn't take more than 2-3 hours if you know what you're doing.
