Default Joes BHG thread!

My car smoked yesterday when starting, bad sign. Started using oil and coolant...another bad sign. Then last night, overheated, So i pulled over and left it cool off. Then i drove it home, It seemed fine. I checked the oil, And it smelled like burnt antifreeze....another bad sign. Now im worried lol. So this morning, I go to start it, pumps massive ammounts of coolant out, And its smoking out of the oil, So my final determination, BHG! lol. Which sucks because it has a brand new head. Previous owner reused the stock bolts...which i suspect is the problem. Pictures in a few minutes.

Thats all i did for today, I didnt think i would get that much off in the 2 hours I had before work. I need to pick up some sockets and extensions and such to get the rest apart. Next is the exhaust and upper intake manifolds. Does anyone have any tips for me so far? and if i may ask...what size are the head bolts? I didnt really look at em much. I had to clean up and leave right after i got the valve covers off.

I believe they are 8mm allen heads. It's either 8 or 10. But im 80% sure its an 8mm. You're gonna have to put some muscle into loosening them also. I'll know for sure on Sunday so if you dont know by then, just wait for my post, lol.

Yup, I took all that apart with 5 tools, ratchet, pliers, 10 12 mm sockets, and a 4 in 1 screwdriver. lol. Almost all sockets on these cars are 10,12,14, and 17. some bigger stuff for suspension but thats pretty much it. I only have those for sockets, and 15 and 9 because they are common on other shit lol. I need to get an extension and swivel tho, So i can get the intake mani off.
