I have done two STS's. Note the engine must be pulled and you will likely need to replace a few more items while you are at it.

See the link below and go to Timesert Repair. There is an Excel spreadsheet or an image file if you do not have Excel.

George,

How about adding that to the head gasket thread in the Cadillac technical discussion area. Didn't you have more written up?

Then we'll have all the info together. Thanks, Zonie

timesert.com or maybe a used one on ebay. If you get a used one make sure you order new inserts. If you buy a new one make sure you order 10 extra for the 2nd head. It only comes with 10.
