Head Gasket Replacement for Dummies Procedure
From another post I have received several requests for the pictures I took during my head gasket replacement last winter (2009) I did on my S4 1991 Spider.
I did a search, and could not find a step by step procedure
I think that it will also be very similiar for the S3 model, less the power steering pump.
Firstly, I would like to thank SpiderFrek from this BB who pointed me to a Swiss Forum that showed a thread on head gasket replacement but on another engine, but similiar enough. That thread was written by Giomartello.
Next, while I did take a lot of pictures during the change, there were a few steps that I did miss, however, I have been able to find other pictures that demonstrate what is being done. So if you see the same picture, once to take bolts out and later the same picture to put the bolts back in, you are seeing the same picture.
If I have missed something, please let me know and I will correct it.
I am not a mechanic, but like most of us that have Alfa's, am learning and hopefully, this will help someone take the job on.
Motor Mounts and Head Gasket Change, a must if your are an Alfista.

Honey, this is the last thing I have to do, then I'm finished. It'll just be a minute.
