'97 Civic LX with D16Y7 engine(non-VTEC)and auto trans. I need to replace the head gasket. My Haynes manual (#42025) says to remove the rocker arm assembly and camshaft to remove the head. However, it looks like, from the pics in the manual, that the head bolts are accessable with these parts still installed. If so, could torqueing the head bolts down with these parts installed cause a problem? Also, is it OK to reuse the head bolts if they are in good condition? I'd like to get some advise from someone who's actually done this before I start the job. Many Thanks.


P.S. Can anyone reccomend a good machine shop in the vicinity of Exton/West Chester/Downingtown, PA. Thanks.
