I bought a 93 Allante that turns out to have a bad head gasket. The only option I have is to replace them myself. I have a few questions:

Where can I find instructions?
Is it possible to do without removing the engine?
Will it require any expensive tools that I can't rent?

Thanks for any help.

Look in the tech tips section for the head gasket thread. It has almost all the info.

As Zonie says, check the tech section, BUT A few questions need be addressed first. Hopefully you have some advanced mechanical skills. Engine must be removed; out the bottom, though some have pulled it out the top. ALL the headbolt holes (20) MUST be Timeserted. That means the special Timesert kit and inserts.
Now go to the tech section.
