Help/advice on head removal and rebuild...
I haven't been on here since i failed the emissions test 3x and drove her back into the old garage
But I finally found some time to start the head removal procedure to have it rebuilt so I can get her up and running again and can (hopefully) pass emissions and finally install the Greddy kit...
So I have a few questions about removing the head. I have everything apart except for getting the manifold off, and getting the T belt off to pull the head.
Can I remove the T belt on the short nose 1.6L with out removing the crank pulley? I am pretty sure I read somewhere that that is possible, but it doesn't seem like that is the case (i do plan on installing new belt)
When they rebuild a head typically what is done, and what needs to be done?
Should I do anything else to the head itself or engine while it is apart?
Can I port+polish anything myself?
Thanks for the help.
