Head Gasket Help

Recommended Posts

I am working on rebuilding an 86 Comanche X 2.5. I read in the manual that I must use a stamped steel gasket. Every auto parts store I have found has the molded type. The question is do I have to use the stamped steel or can I use the molded gasket?

getting ready to pull my manifold due to sheered off front and rear bolt heads so i will be interested in the answer here too. i do know that the reason the 2.5  exhaust mani bolt heads sheared was because the original factory torque specs had all 3 at the same. there was a recall i believe that re-torqued the end ones at a lower torque so just a heads up make sure u have the updated specs and not the original.
