Head Gaskets

does the intake have to come off the change head gaskets on a 350 small block? If someone has a detailed discription on the head gasket job, that would be appreciated.

I would suggest buying a good service manual if you havent done such repairs before.

huh?? i can't even think of how the hell you would take the heads off without taking the intake off!?!?!

you will have to take the ditributor out, unhook everything from the intake and carb. remove bolts and take intake out. then remove exhaust and anything else attached to heads. Then take head bolts out and pry the heads off. with AC it falls under the anything else attached category.


Buy a hayne book before you start into it, as you will need the info that is in that book if you never done this before.

The head will come off without pulling the intake, yes. but it's a PITA going back together. you have to work the new intake gasket in and unless you are really good or extremely lucky you will have an oil leak at both corners of the intake when your done, then you will wind up pulling the intake anyways to fix the oil leak.

I strongly recommend pulling the intake, it will make your job much easier. You should also consider why you are pulling the head. If you have a bad valve I would pull both heads and do a complete valve job with new stem seals. At the very least lap them in and replace the stem seals on the valves. If you just rebuild one head the other side will begin acting up in the near future. Do it once, do it right.

Do like 4x4freak and Cody said.. get a good shop manual before you start.

Don't forget the torque wrench you will need that for the heads & intake. Get the haynes book and read it....you will see what I mean.
