    Did you have the cylinder surfaced and pressure tested for cracks? Was the head gasket bolts properly torqued down in the correct sequence. There is a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
    What initially caused the gasket to blow, blown hose, stuck thermostat? Was that problem fixed?
