Triumph/TR3A Projects:Head Gasket Replacement

I've had to pull my engine head a couple times.

It's much easier than I thought it would be, though the first time it was very difficult to actually lift the head off, it was practically welded to the block. So the first album is about how I accomplished that.

The second album is a photo how-to which (with your Haynes manual) should make a head gasket replacement rather simple.

The third album shows a novel method to remove the head that's faster but might require a lift.
