#343855 I ordered my tow hooks about 3 days ago, and they should be here by Tuesday, April 1st. Excited to put those babies on. The front bumper is off to clean before installation.


Head was recently rebuilt and honed while we were replacing the blown head gasket. Still blowing lots of white smoke, so we think we put it on backwards.
So, we got a new head gasket and are gonna put it on correctly this time. Should have pics of that in the next couple days. Wish me luck!

#343981 Thanks! They were like 19.99 on eBay.

In other news, I had changed the head gasket about a month ago because it was blowing a white smoke, and it was properly blown. Also, went and got the head milled and rebuilt. Put it back on with all new gaskets and did an oil and coolant change. Still was blowing white smoke...
So we thought that maybe we but the HG on backwards, so yesterday we bought a new head gasket and took the head off again, and it was actually on the correct way. There are two holes on the Camshaft sprocket side of the head that let oil into the head, and we thought those holes were blocked by the head gasket that we thought we put on backwards. So, we replaced the Head gasket with the new one, and bolted everything to spec. At the time when we started it after replacing the HG for the 2nd time, we were running open headers. Started it up, and it blew a LOT of white smoke for at least 5 minutes. Any thoughts? I'm really stumped. I have no idea what could be wrong. Someone help. :? :cry:

#343984 coolant is some making its way into your cylinders...did you take a flat edge and feeler gauges to make sure the deck of the block was square and true (completely flat) and did you make sure to get new headbolts, I believe they stretch when torqued down the first time and will never completely seal again after being used..also what motor is it?

#343987 Unfortunately the headbolts for the D15b7 are expensive (if you use OEM parts)

At this point, I'd look into a set of ARP head studs because it's only another $20 or so than a set of D15b7 head bolts from the dealership. The benefit is that you can use ARP head studs over and over because they are not stretch bolts like the OEM bolts for the D15b7.

(D16y7/y8 head bolts are not stretch bolts, can be re-used and cost 1/3 of the D15b7 head bolts, go figure... they don't fit the D15b7/D16z6 though)

#344046 Thanks for the info guys. I'll check into it! :)

But, bad news...

I just did a compression test.
(From left to right)

Cylinder 1) 85 PSI
Cylinder 2) 112 PSI
Cylinder 3) 112 PSI
Cylinder 4) 60 PSI

The internet tells me the compression should be 185 PSI across the board, with a minimum of 135 on all cylinders.
So, If this means that i need new piston rings, I might cry. :cry: :thumbdown:
