Help with Cyl. Head Gasket Change
I bought a '99 323i with a bad motor (M52). I got an M54 with the car and put it in, only to find out the head gasket is blown. I have the factory Bently service manual, and I was reading the procedure for cylinder head removal, and there are several, probably expensive tools, that I will need for proper camshaft timing and Double VANOS setup. This will be the first time in years that I have had to subcontract engine work out of my shop, and is rather frustrating. My question is, are these tools available, do I need them, are there shortcuts, and how much would tooling be?
